Description
For centuries, people suffering from certain symptoms were branded as "lepers" and became societal outcasts. Eventually, a man named Hansen was able to discover a treatment, and what became known as Hansen's disease was all but wiped out. This book charts the history of the disease, describes the stigma attached to leprosy, explains the science involved in finding a cure, and covers the World Health Organization's attempts to rid the entire world of the disease.
