Inaugural research meeting, August 2018
Our first working group is launched in a historic meeting in Basel, Switzerland, hosted by the Novartis Foundation. Facilitators and advisors of the Research Agenda Working Group met to begin steps for developing a research agenda to achieve zero leprosy. An open call went out and the group grew to 144 members from all over the world. The research agenda aligns priorities for current and potential future innovations in diagnostics, strategies, and interventions to contribute to zero leprosy. The agenda will be available in early 2019.
