English portal of the history of leprosy in Spain is now available

Activity area:

English portal of “Fontilles and leprosy in Spain” is now available.

It has been open in Spanish on “Biblioteca Virtual Miguel de Cervantes (BVMC)“, a largest digital library in Spanish-language.

The portal offers a small bibliography, which includes Spain’s major historical and epidemiological leprosy studies, and a selection of links to leprosy resources of great interest on the history and current situation of leprosy in the world.

Sasakawa Health Foundation provided the necessary funds to recover, digitize and edit the wide-ranging series of documents, works, images and objects of Fontilles’ historical heritage. The original portal was developed as a part of those efforts.
