WISH LIST: Ramesh Choudhary, Manager, Community Health & Development Department Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital & Services Centre (LLHSC) – Nepal Leprosy Trust

For each issue, the Leprosy Bulletin asks a person affected by leprosy or an individual involved in leprosyrelated work for two to three things that they wish could happen. We ask contributors to be bold in order to stimulate thinking and inspire new approaches.

Ramesh Kumar Choudhary

  1. A joyful society where persons affected by leprosy can participate freely; where they are listened to when they share their voices; and where they are respectfully called by their name and profession instead of by their disease.
  2. A global network that advocates for all persons affected by leprosy to receive full support under the community-based rehabilitation (CBR) matrix associated with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD).
  3. A United Nations convention that specifically protects and promotes the human rights of persons affected by leprosy and legally obligates countries to remove all discriminatory laws related to leprosy.
