Message from the CEO

United Nations activity in Geneva this month has been dominated by the World Health Assembly where there has been a strong focus on universal health coverage (UHC).

We provide summary reports in this Update on sessions that may interest ILEP members. 

We’re delighted that Alice Cruz, UN Special Rapporteur on leprosy, has had her first official visit, to Brazil. You’ll find in this Update a summary report with links to her official statement and video. She has also received official invitations to visit India and Ethiopia. ILEP is working with Alice and the Japanese Permanent Mission to support a side event focused on leprosy during the Human Rights Council at the end of June.
