Tanzania’s National Programme develops action plan to achieve zero leprosy
In May 2022, the National Leprosy Programme of Tanzania held a four-day workshop in Dodoma to develop a Zero Leprosy Action Plan. Tanzania is a 2020 country partner of the Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy (GPZL). The programme began implementing the Zero Leprosy Country Model in 2021 with the country review, stakeholder meeting, and the creation of Tanzania’s Zero Leprosy Roadmap. With the development of the Zero Leprosy Action Plan, the National Leprosy Programme, headed by Dr. Deusdedit Kamara, is one step closer to disease elimination.
