Dear Pieter,


Greetings from Infolep!

Did you know that the Infolep portal gives you access to over 27,200 publications on leprosy? The purpose of this monthly newsletter is to inform you about recent publications on leprosy and related subjects.  Feel free to contact me to receive the full text versions if a link to the full text is not provided. Assistance with your literature research is also possible. Do you have any leprosy research or training material you would like to share? Please send me an e-mail.

I am excited to be at the National Leprosy Conference in Delhi next week.
The theme is: "Accelerating towards leprosy free India through Innovative Approaches". 
🇮🇳 Visit the Infolep collection of publications on leprosy in India here.
