Open Call: Operational Excellence Working Group


Open Call: Anyone working in or affected by leprosy is invited to apply to the Operational Excellence Working Group, hosted by the Global Partnership for Zero Leprosy. The objective of this working group is to foster the development, use, monitoring, and evaluation of best practices and promising innovations in national leprosy control programmes. The working group will be organized in five areas, including identification, early detection, disability, stigma, and infrastructure.  Join this working group to help build a learning community and accelerate progress towards a world without leprosy.
