Our Mission


As one of the world’s busiest leprosy hospitals, with an annual patient-flow of over 1,100 new leprosy patients, 12,300 total leprosy consultations (new and returning), and over 110,000 outpatients visits of all types... and an awesome Community Outreach program with 112 Self-Help Groups ...


Nepal Leprosy Trust is a Christian organization that serves people affected by leprosy, as well as other ill, needy, marginalized, disabled and poor.


At LLHSC we strive to provide compassionate high quality, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health care, and we also work though active community outreach, social support and training programmes.


We aim for the ultimate elimination of leprosy, improved health, development and socio-economic upliftment, capacity-building, and human rights empowerment, especially through participative community development.
