GPZL Zero Leprosy Country Model

In a webinar on 29 May 2019 the Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy (GPZL) has outlined its Zero Leprosy Country Model. This consists of four elements:

  1. Zero leprosy toolkit of best practices, which is currently under development through the work of a large number of subject specialist teams including many participants connected to ILEP Members.
  2. Zero leprosy helpdesk, which will be developed later in 2019 and will provide practical advice related to the toolkit and implementation of zero leprosy strategies.
  3. Country review, through National Partnerships for Zero Leprosy. The first of these, a pilot review on Nepal, will be happening in July at the invitation of the Ministry of Health & Population.
  4. Country roadmap to zero leprosy, which would be prepared after the country review using relevant practices from the toolkit and advice, as needed, from the helpdesk.
