Leprosy Mailing List – June 16, 2013
Ref.: (LML) ILEP Questionnaire Urban Leprosy
From: Dr. Marivic Balagon, Cebu, Philippines
Dear Dr. Schreuder,
Rapid urbanization brings along challenges such as migration, overcrowding and difficult access to basic health services including leprosy. In leprosy, early findings suggest that the rate of treatment default and grade - 2 deformities is proportionately higher in urban compared to rural areas. In view of this, the poor implementation of leprosy control services in urban settings has become a global concern , thus the need to look for strategic measures to address this problem.
Through this online survey, ILEP invites our colleagues and LML readers to share their expertise and best practices to improve the leprosy control services in urban localities. Whatever are your insights / experiences in urban leprosy , your participation will certainly make a difference in the lives of the patients we serve.
You may click the LINK below and you will be taken directly to the survey. Kindly send in your input not later than June 30, 2013.
Thank you for sharing with us your insights and expertise by responding to this questionnaire.
