I would like to share with you some of the photographs taken during my visit to India from January 28 to February 5, 2020.
[February 3, Ahmedabad, Gujarat state]
Meeting with Mr. B.G. Nainvale (right), Deputy Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities.
Meeting with members of the Association of People Affected by Leprosy (APAL), who briefed me on their campaign to fight leprosy and its associated stigma in Gujarat state.
Meeting with Dr. Jayanti S. Ravi, Principal Secretary of Health, who presented me with her book.
With Chief Secretary Anil Mukim, IAS (right).
Interviewed on the state government channel VANDE (Video Audio Network for Development and Education) Gujarat.
It looked gorgeous on TV, but this was the actual backdrop in the studio.
Attending a ceremony to start distributing flip charts to educate people on early detection of leprosy.
I hope that ASHAs (Accredited Social Health Activists) will make good use of the flip charts in detecting leprosy.
