I am happy that the Website for the Association of People Affected by Leprosy ( A P A L ) has been launched. APAL has an important history in the short period about the lives of the leprosy affected persons. It is conducting various programmes to improve the quality of the life of the leprosy affected persons to live a dignified life without stigma and discrimination.
I wish APAL to have many programmes involving the persons affected by leprosy with the Governments and with various NGOs to achieve its objectives.
