Dear Pieter,

The newsletter provides you with a selection of news items and recent publications on cross-cutting issues in NTDs. Our starting point is to add articles covering a wide variety of issues. Unfortunately, this is not always possible due to a limited diversity in and shortage of articles on cross-cutting issues and NTDs.

Feel free to contact us
(infontd@leprastichting.nl) with any questions or to receive the PDF if a link to the full text is not included. Our document delivery service is free!

Assessing the feasibility of integration of self-care for filarial lymphoedema into existing community leprosy self-help groups in Nepal.
Pryce J, Mableson HE, Choudhary R, et al. BMC Public Health. 2018; 18(1):201.
Abstract Lymphatic filariasis (LF) and leprosy are disabling infectious diseases endemic in Nepal. LF infection can lead to lymphoedema and hydrocoele, while secondary effects of leprosy infection include impairments to hands, eyes and feet. The disabling effects of both conditions can be managed through self-care and the supportive effects of self-help groups (SHGs). The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of integrating LF affected people into existing leprosy SHGs in Nepal.

(LML) In memoriam Dr. Dullobho Poriccha

Leprosy Mailing List – February 11 ,  2018

Ref.: (LML) In memoriam Dr. Dullobho Poriccha  

From:  Cdr. Narsimham, Orissa, India


 

Dear Dr. Schreuder,

 

 

Would you be so kind to publish this poem as in memoriam for Dr. Dullobho Poriccha, who had dedicated his working life to the fight against leprosy.

 

 

Dr Dullobho Porichha

Born 10 Sep 1944

Died  07 Sep 2017

 

And a life quietly wrapped up
Without a whimper or whisper heard
Silently passed on to another world

Left behind a conundrum of jargons –
Flummoxed narrative shall go on
Of what led to a hasty obedience

For the teary eyes live to tell
How death struck many a grievous blows
Before the departed finally let go

Of artistic zeal and will to live
Breaking bonds to set free from
A family's love, a fraternity's pride

Endgame is played out for all
But only a few make a virtuous exit
And in their leaving, render grace a destitute

 

 

Thanks and regards,

 

 

Cdr Narsimham

(LML) Reliability of Global Leprosy Statistics

Leprosy Mailing List – February 9,  2018

Ref.:    (LML) Reliability of Global Leprosy Statistics

From:  P Narasimba Rao, Hyderabad, India


Dear Pieter,

I like to refer to the LML mails by Claudio Salgado "Reliability of Global Leprosy Statistics" of February 1, 2018, and from Joel Almeida on February 6, 2018. In India, which is a large country with many districts which are endemic for leprosy, there are good number of leprosy patients who are missed, as leprosy programme from 2005 onwards only supported & promoted voluntary reporting of leprosy cases.  However, recently there has been shift to focussed active search in high endemic districts of India by authorities through 'leprosy case detection campaigns'.  This has thrown up some very startling results and revealed the magnitude of missed leprosy cases.

 

Dr Anil Kumar, Deputy Director General (Leprosy) Government of India, NLEP (National leprosy eradication programme), in an interview to The Indian Express newspaper of 23 Nov 2016 stated that "As many as 31,666 'hidden' leprosy cases found in   door- to-door active case survey in India. The survey found highest number of leprosy cases in Bihar (4,526) Odisha (4,399) and Chhattisgarh (2560).

 

The Maharashtra state Joint Director (NLEP Leprosy) Mr Sanjeev Kamble stated in The Indian express newspaper (26.11.2016) that the highest number of children with leprosy were identified in Maharashtra. They found around 500 children with leprosy in the tribal area of Palghar district alone.

 

Note that this number of 31,666 new cases identified with in few weeks of active survey is about 25% of annual new case detection of India. By this which we can imagine the magnitude of the problem of missing leprosy cases in this country. Keeping this in view, NLEP is planning to have active surveys in 160 districts/ blocks of India where leprosy is endemic, (Prevalence rate 1 to 10 per 10,000 population) through innovative Leprosy Case Detection Campaigns (LCDC).

 

Such high numbers of missed cases were also substantiated by other workers from India. A report published in Lepr Rev  in 2016 has  shown  that there are good number of missing / hidden numbers of  leprosy patients in endemic districts of India, which were detected  by active contact surveys of leprosy patient households. During a Leprosy Case Detection Campaign (LCDC) organised by NLEP in the Munger district of Bihar, 106 new leprosy cases were detected through house to house surveys in eight blocks.  An additional 84 new cases were detected within 45 days through complementary contact and focal survey of households in the same district by LEPRA.(1)

 

Hence, the 'missing numbers' are not just those statistics from countries from which leprosy numbers were not received by WHO for inclusion in its global leprosy numbers, but more significantly those present in endemic areas of countries such as India, but not detected due to  various administrative reasons.  

 

The 'missing numbers of leprosy' are definitely a significant problem in India. More inclusive efforts through 'inter-sectoral collaboration' within country as suggested by Global leprosy strategy document 2016-2020 is the only way forward to detect them effectively. 

 

With best regards
