About us

info Hansen seeks to share the information about Hansen's disease with the world, with an emphasis on Hansen's disease-endemic countries. Above all, at the heart of info Hansen is the recognition of an equal relationship between health workers and people affected by the disease.

The flow of information, ideas and experiences through this bridge and the mutual respect it will generate are essential for the elimination of Hansen's disease.

As a digital platform, the info Hansen aims to disseminate what is being done in Brazil and the world to improve the lives of people affected by Hansen's disease, as well as new scientific findings and ethical reflections.
