COVID-19 and leprosy: a look at the situation in Bihar state, India

Tuesday 9 June 2020 11:00 – 11:40 UK time

Join RSTMH as we talk to Rajni Kant Singh, State Coordinator for Bihar operations, LEPRA. We will be looking at the impact of COVID-19 on people living with leprosy.

Rajni, who has been working with people with leprosy for over 25 years, will be discussing with Dr Saba Lambert how we can ensure people with disabilities aren’t left behind in COVID-19 responses, and what the current situation is in terms of access to healthcare, mental health issues, and stigmatisation.

During this interactive event, we welcome questions from the audience.
