Self-care Project in Bihar & UP (MMZ Supported)
Secret of the Cure is Self Care……..
Persons with disabilities due to leprosy (PWDL) are always prone to develop progressive secondary disabilities like ulcers, contractures, blindness etc. due to permanent nerve damage. Prevention of these secondary disabilities is essential to preserve the functioning of parts like hands, feet and eyes.
Self Care is a care provided “For You, By You”.
- Self-care is set of practices performed by the affected persons by themselves to enhance and restore health and self-esteem. It requires active engagement by the persons affected by leprosy.
