Abstract:
Background: Hyderabad Leprosy Eradication Project (HYLEP) is situated in the eastern part of the city of Hyderabad, the capital city of the state of Andhra Pradesh. The HYLEP project was established in the year 1989 with the main objective of eliminating leprosy as a project of LEPRA Society; a non-government voluntary health organisation. Later LEPRA spread its activities to other diseases like TB, Malaria, and HIV/AIDS and rehabilitation programmes associated with these diseases. The population of the district is 3,829,753 of which 1,848,580 are females. Children below 6 years are 235,911. Design: Adult education on demand from the community, and on the same platform health education for adolescent girls is provided by the project. This will improve the lives of children and women and equip them to take care of their own interests. A society with healthy women and children will always be prosperous and this is an indication of positive development in a nation. Significance: HYLEP project works among others to create awareness and build capacity in the community in areas like health, socioeconomic improvement, and education. The project also provides facilitative measures (SER) to increase self-confidence and reliance through liaison with Government, other NGOs and philanthropists for assistance. The goals are achieved through the formation of Health and Social Development forums and guiding the forums to be able to solve their issues by them selves; involvement of Angan Wadi workers and ANMs; and organizing adolescent girl education. The experience gained from the project will be presented in the form of case studies showing the impact of empowerment as well as data on the project activities.
