The part­ners have estab­lished a joint fund to sup­port lep­rosy research and to source exter­nal fund­ing. The joint fund will be reserved for research that is exclu­sively or strongly related to lep­rosy. Addi­tional resources will be actively sought for research in the field of gen­eral dis­abil­i­ties and for research aimed at dif­fer­ent dis­eases (e.g. other NTDs, tuberculosis and dia­betes) in com­bi­na­tion with leprosy.

The Lep­rosy Mis­sion Ire­land (TLM Ire­land) is sup­port­ing the run­ning costs. The Austrian Leprosy Relief Association (ALRA) funds a research grant.
