The system of multiple drug therapy for leprosy recommended by the World Health Organisation in 1982 is an extremely effective treatment which, if widely introduced and effectively operated, could result in a dramatic reduction of the incidence and severity of leprosy throughout the world. This book, written in the form of extended answers to a series of questions, deals with a variety of aspects of the care and management of patients undergoing multiple drug therapy. It is aimed essentially at those in senior positions concerned with teaching health workers, programme planning and implementation of leprosy control programmes.
