The Partnership’s Country Model

The Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy (GPZL) is working toward a world without leprosy through a country-by-country strategy. We bring together partners in-country and international stakeholders to work on country-led customized strategies that address local needs and priorities to end leprosy (Hansen’s disease).

The Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy spearheads this work in close collaboration with WHO’s Global Leprosy Programme, and offers support to national programmes through a unique country model approach. This model builds country capacity through country reviews, roadmaps, and resources and tools.

We assist countries by:

  • Helping countries take stock of their current activities and needs through country reviews.
  • Creating visioning road maps that lead towards zero leprosy.
  • Supporting country-led strategies through resource mobilization, technical assistance and online tools.

The country model has been implemented in Nepal, Morocco, and Ghana.
