The Leprosy Mission is an international Christian organization working with and for people affected by leprosy. Founded by Wellesley Bailey in 1874. The leprosy Mission is the oldest and largest leprosy-focused organization in the world today.
We recognize the complex effects that leprosy has on the life of the individual. Therefore we take a holistic approach, caring for the physical, social, spiritual and psychological needs of people affected by leprosy. In our projects we concentrate on community-based rehabilitation, prevention of disability, advocacy, capacity building, healthcare, education, stigma reduction and occasionally on disaster response and preparedness.
We work primarily with people affected by leprosy, many of whom have few rights and are often stigmatized by their communities. We believe that staying focused on our vision of a world without leprosy is of vital importance. This is why we have chosen to maintain our commitment to leprosy work and have not diversified into other areas of healthcare, our work often naturally extends to including other marginalized people in society, those with severe disabilities of those living in extreme poverty.
Until 2011 The Leprosy Mission's global structure consisted of around 20 donor countries contributing to the Mission's programmes in the field which centrally by TLM International, which is based in London. in 201ci1, TLM countries signed a charter, committing to certain principles and ways of working. These countries are now 'Members' of the Leprosy Mission Global Fellowship. This decision affirms the Mission's move towards decentralization and a more shared approach to decision making.
The 31 member countries consist of both 'supporting' (donor) countries and 'implementing' (field) countries. Both are equally valued members and are equal partners in the work. It is the Members who drive the Mission forward and make decisions about how TLM's work should function and develop.
Around the world The Leprosy Mission has over 2000 staff and implements or supports around 200 leprosy projects in 27 countries. The largest number of our projects is in India. There are also a significant number in Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nigeria and Nepal. Increasingly the Mission seeks to work with partners rather than implementing projects directly. The gross annual income of the Mission is around �20 million, of which 85% comes through private donations and bequests, and the rest from Governments and other institutional funders and from investments.
The Leprosy Mission is a member agency of ILEP (The International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Organizations).
The Leprosy Mission in Bangladesh (TLMI-B)
The Leprosy Mission International (TLMIB) has a long history of working in Bangladesh, particularly in leprosy services, dated back from 1926 when it first started supporting the leprosy work in Chandraghona in Chittagong Hill Tracts. The organization is a prime member of the National Leprosy Elimination Program (NLEP) of the ministry of health and family welfare of government of Bangladesh. It is also a member country of the global fellowship of the leprosy mission.
The Leprosy Mission actively started supporting the national leprosy program by setting up projects since 1994. In line with the global priorities, The Leprosy Mission looks forward to the organizational goal : Leprosy Defeated; Life Transformed. In the current Bangladesh TLM strategy, the organization targets the people affected by leprosy. The services for them are all free. The organization further targets the people suffering from physical disabilities and also those discriminated social class, who are neglected by communities.
