Amritsar health department holds awareness camp on leprosy

The health department of Amritsar organised a training and orientation camp on leprosy for its employees.

The idea is to make employees aware about leprosy patients and their medical needs.

The employees were educated about the symptoms of leprosy, how to find such patients and guide them for further diagnosis.

Early finding and treatment of leprosy can save people from getting permanent disability.

Leprosy is a serious curable infectious disease that mainly leads to skin injury and nerve damage.
