This new project in Indonesia has an emphasis on finding and curing people with leprosy. By implementing the approach of 'contact tracing' of leprosy patients, and providing one dose of antibiotic Rifampicin to those who have close contact with leprosy patients; it could bring a breakthrough in reducing the risk of leprosy transmission.
