About the organization

LEPRA Society (LEPRA) is a non-governmental organization that promotes high-quality health care and promotes innnovations. We are a PAN India Organization with geographical footprint held in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, and Delhi. We are also a member of the international Lepra network, which is based in the UK and is associated with the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP). Our research facility. Blue Peter Public Health & Research Centre (BPHRC) is recognised as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO) by the Government of India and hence enjoys the facility of 150% tax exemption under the section 35 1(ii) of the Indian IT act. Leprosy, TB and Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) are LEPRA's main priority areas of research. BPHRC has a state of the art laboratory facility for undertaking thematic research, particularly in the fields of molecular diagnostics, antibiotic resistance, disability management and wound care. We work in close coordination with the health departments, at the Central, State and District levels. BPHRC's work caters to the needs of societies most marginalized, needy, and vulnerable people. We thrive for developing new ideas for research and translate the scientific evidence thus accrued, for advancements in diagnosis, therapeutic interventions and disability/morbidity management in leprosy and TB.

BPHRC, through its collaboration with government healthcare programmers and academic institutes, advocates for evidence-based policies that can be translated into affordable and accessible healthcare models. As part of its humanitarian response, BPHRC run ICMR recognised COVID RTPCR facility to cater to the COVID testing needs of marginalised and needy people.  We are now ready with two leads for clinical validation, one each on wound care for foot ulcers and non invasive swab test for leprosy. We look forward to partner or coordinate with sponsors or donors who could support transalting our work.

Why should a corporate partner with organization?

LEPRA is a well known not for profit organization working towards improving the quality of life for people that are marginalized and most vulnerable to societal inequalities. Our public health research thrives on bringing out the best solutions which are simple, effective, accessible, less expensive, and most urgent for the health care needs of our beneficiaries. Chronic foot ulcers are associated with diseases like leprosy, diabetes, lymphatic filariasis, etc., and lead to physical disability if not treated in time. Through our community work and earlier research, we found that foot ulcers negatively impact the quality of life of the affected persons in terms of economic loss due to lost wages/ work hours, chronic health care expenses, and social issues due to stigma and discrimination.

Timely and appropriate interventions for chronic foot problems would prevent the disability and facilitate the people to go back to their normal life. Our work hence focuses on bringing out the best possible solutions for chronic foot ulcers in order to make a positive impact on the lives of the affected people. LEPRA-BPHRC already has the medical expertise, access to the communities, and clinical and laboratory facility for undertaking translational research on this very important health issue and looking for partnership and funding support from corporate CSRs to reach out to the needy people. Since LEPRA society-BPHRC is a SIRO organization, the CSR grants that are donated for research are 150% exempted under the IT Section 35(1) (ii).
