National Health Programmes: Manipur Scenario

National Leprosy Eradication Programme (NLEP)

The programme is in operation since 1955 as control programme. The prevalence of leprosy was 6 per 1000 population during the early eighties. The objective of the programme is to bring down the prevalence to 0.1 per 1000 population.

NLEP has been going on as a vertical programme but the state has already proposed to Government of India for integration of leprosy services with General Health Care Services.

Currently the programme is conducted through the following service units :

Sl. No Name of Centre No. of Units Centre Address
1 Urban Leprosy Centre 1 Imphal
2 Leprosy Control Unit 4 Thoubal, Bishnupur, Ukhrul &  Tamenglong
3 Survey education and Treatment  Centre(SET) 17
4 Leprosy Hospital (50 bedded) 1 Chingmeniring, Imphal
5 Temporary Hospitalisation Wards 2 Bishnupur & Thoubal
6 District Leprosy Societies for effective implementation of the programme 8 All Districts

Under World Bank assisted project (1996-97 to 2001-2002) Govt. of India provided cash assistance to the 8 District Leprosy Societies constituted to assist in implementing the programme. So far the World Bank has released Rs. 537.27 lakhs.

To augment the programme Modified Leprosy Elimination Campaign is launched. The first campaign was done from 8 to 14 March 1999 during which 14.59 lakhs population were covered.

2nd round Modified Leprosy Elimination campaign was held from December 1999 to Feb. 2000 about 80% of Medical Officers and 70% of Para Medical staff were given training.

IEC activities and monitoring of salt samples through IDD monitoring lab and through field testing kits are the mainstay of the programme.
