Stopping transmission of leprosy is a complex process that relies on basic science, epidemiological work, surveillance, laboratory work, field trials, service delivery improvement and systems enhancement as well as community level interventions.

A strategy to prevent the transmission of leprosy bacteria is to diagnose all leprosy patients very early and treat them with multidrug therapy (MDT). MDT kills the bacteria and stops the spread of the disease.
