Ask your MP to End the Neglect

On 8 June, The Leprosy Mission will host an event in parliament raising awareness about leprosy and other Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs).

This will be a vital opportunity to talk to MPs about the impact of NTDs on the world's poorest and most marginalised people, and how working to end these diseases will help make the world a fairer and more just place where people can live life to the full.

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown that diseases know no borders. They pose a common threat to global health, economies, livelihoods and security. The UK has a strong track record of tackling NTDs through investment in research, innovation, business partnerships and healthcare delivery. 

However, this reputation is at risk without ongoing leadership, investment and engagement by the government to achieve the targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, including those on NTDs.

Right now, we need to raise awareness that spending on global health is an investment that will transform millions of lives. If as many MPs as possible attend on 8 June, we can get this message out to the people who can influence future decisions.

Will you send a message to your MP asking them to attend the event? By getting the message out about investing in NTDs, we can encourage MPs to act and help improve life for people affected by leprosy for generations to come.
