Towards zero leprosy by 2030 in Bangladesh

Two behaviours, one related to leprosy self-care and one to leprosy screening, were tackled within this pilot project: self-care of ulcers and reporting of suspected cases. Target group for both behaviours were current leprosy patients. Two behaviour change campaigns were developed, one for each behaviour.

 

The main focus was laid on providing knowledge on how to do good ulcer care and how to report a suspected case, social norms and support, action and barrier planning, self-monitoring of behaviour performance and eliciting positive feelings. A poster was used in both campaigns as info material, self-monitoring tool and reminder. The campaigns were piloted in two districts, Rangamati and Bandarban, by the Leprosy Mission International Bangladesh (TLMI-B) and evaluated.
