Netherlands Leprosy Relief (Dutch: Leprastichting) is a non-governmental organization, established on 30 March 1967, which promotes and supports the eradication of leprosy and all its consequences in seven regions where the disease is endemic.[1] NLR was a founding member of the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP), and sponsors over 100 projects in about 20 countries.[2] The association helped create (and maintain) a leprosy-information service (Infolep),[3] which may be accessed from the ILEP website.
