Short description of the organization and its work to control and eliminate NTDs

Founded in 1958, the Aussätzigen-Hilfswerk Österreich (Austrian Leprosy Relief Association, ALRA) works towards overcoming leprosy in the course of combatting NTDs. We strive for inclusion for those affected by leprosy. This is part of our rights-based approach to health sector development. Building on the successes of anti-leprosy work, we focus on capacity development (CD in health education). We are committed to primary health care (PHC) and the Alma Ata Declaration. We seek to overcome charity, realising solidarity.
The target region of our work is in greater East Africa and the Arab States Region.
