A comparative KAP study of leprosy patients and members of the community in hlaing and laung-lon townships.
A KAP study was conducted in the peri-urban Hlaing and rural Laung-Lon Townships in Myanmar.
It was found that both the leprosy patients as well as community members were still not sure about the cause of leprosy.
Social stigma of leprosy encountered by patients needs to be addressed especially in peri-urban areas.
It was also found that the patient's understanding of treatment regularity was still very unsatisfactory, for which health education measures needs to be introduced.
