This project aimed to increase access to quality leprosy, lymphatic filariasis (LF) and disability services within an integrated health system for communities in Zamfara. The project worked closely with the Government’s Department of Health to improve health services, train health workers, and increase access to health clinics at a local level. The project also worked with communities to help ensure people with disabilities were included in society.
Some of last year’s achievements include:
Thirty government health workers were given a three-day training course on leprosy and lymphatic filariasis diagnosis and treatment, at a cost $193 per health worker.
