Abstract

The attitudes of nurses toward leprosy are studied and in this paper. The findings show that their knowledge of leprosy is lacking and that they also fear leprosy. This study recommends that leprosy should be included in the basic nursing curriculum in order to increase awareness and to decrease the stigma of leprosy.
