Towards zero leprosy by 2030 in Bangladesh

Two behaviours, one related to leprosy care and one to leprosy detection, were tackled within this pilot project: ulcer care and reporting of suspicious cases. Target group for both behaviours were current leprosy patients.

Two behaviour change campaigns were developed using the RANAS approach. The main focus was laid on providing knowledge on how to do appropriate ulcer care and how to report a suspicious case, social norms and support, action and barrier planning, self-monitoring of behaviour performance, and eliciting positive feelings. A poster with a self-monitoring element was used in both campaigns as info material and reminder. The campaigns were piloted in two districts in Bangladesh and well received by the targeted patients. The campaign elements positively influenced several behavioural factors.
