Hansen's disease:

Human Rights, Health and Citizenship

Marginalization of persons affected by Hansen's disease is an evil rooted in society and propagated through generations. Essential services such as health, education, justice and social security perpetuate this segregation and seriously violate human rights. The paradigm shift, however, still seems to be a utopia, since, according to ILEP, 139 discriminatory laws against people affected by Hansen's disease remain in force in 24 countries. All this is addressed by the book "Hansen's disease - Human Rights, Health and Citizenship", which represents an extremely important step towards the construction of a reality truly of all and for all.
