’FAIRMED India’ – financed increasingly through Indian donations
India still has highest number of leprosy cases of any country
FAIRMED – previously known as Leprosy Relief Emmaus Switzerland – is a development organisation that has been instrumental since 1959 in supporting neglected people who are prone to disease and poverty in Africa and Asia. We are active in the African countries of Cameroon, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Mozambique and Tanzania, as well as in the Asian countries of Nepal, India and Sri Lanka. FAIRMED only works with local staff and organisations that are familiar with local environments. This is how we ensure that the local population is actively involved into our work. We enable people who live in remote and neglected areas that are excluded from public health systems to access health care services.
