Members’ Assembly Open Session

On September 10 the ILEP Members’ Assembly held a morning session that was open to all.

The session included updates from The Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy, WHO Global Leprosy Programme, Alice Cruz – the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons Affected by Leprosy, Infolep, and e-health technologies. 

Short presentations were given by the ILEP Members on their experiences in using or developing e-health technologies for new digital activities such as collecting and holding patient information, mapping, telemedicine or other programme-level information systems. 

These presentations served as a taster for the ILEP conference, which will take place in March 2020, with a focus on new technologies and leprosy expertise.
