This course is for all health workers who deal with leprosy affected persons and who need to manage early complications of leprosy. Steroids play an important role in managing of such complications, so this course will be particularly useful to those health workers, who are authorised to prescribe these drugs to the patients.

This course is based mainly on Guide 2 of the ILEP Learning Guides. If you wish, you can download the full text of this guide at the ILEP web page. Some of the pictures used in the course have been taken from Leprosy in Africans, W. K. Jacyk, DAHW & Talmilep; A New Atlas of Leprosy, A. Colin McDougall & Yo Yuasa, SMHF; and from some AIFO supported projects.
