Sasakawa Health Foundation launches Global Appeal

The Global Appeal is an annual campaign that raises awareness of leprosy and calls for an end to the discrimination against persons affected. This year, the Sasakawa Leprosy Initiative invited the world’s philanthropic organizations to join in promoting the Appeal’s call for social inclusion. In addition to a recording of the ceremony and video messages from speakers, the website includes photo exhibition on the theme, “Don’t forget leprosy,” a dialogue between WHO Goodwill Ambassador to Elimination of Leprosy and the chairman of CII Foundation, and recordings of webinars hosted by Sasakawa Leprosy (Hansen’s Disease) Initiative.
