Excerpt
Systematic use of multidrug therapy has proved to be so effective that leprosy can be eliminated as a public health problem by the end of the century However, because of the long incubation period of this disease, together with the time-lag in case detection, the factors involved in achieving and sustaining its elimination have to be very carefully defined. For too long leprosy had the image of being an endless problem with no solution in sight. For many in the industrialized countries it was a distant disease of destitute people who could be cared for by only the most devoted. This grim picture has changed dramatically in recent years thanks to the public health approach and the introduction of effective treatment of patients through multidrug therapy.
