Toolkit for Understanding and Challenging Leprosy-Related Stigma for Civil Society Organisations in India (Leprosy Mission, 2017)
June 26, 2018 by C4D Network
This toolkit is a guide for members of civil society organisations (CSOs) in India and aims to build the capacity of CSOs in promoting inclusion of people affected by leprosy and other disabilities and encourage dialogue with communities around leprosy-related stigma and discrimination.
The toolkit was piloted with field workers from Andhra Pradesh and field workers/CSO members in Uttar Pradesh.
The overall aim of the toolkit is to bring about positive changes in attitude and practices in relation to inclusion and stigma.
