My Struggle against Leprosy (英語) 単行本 – 2019/5/27
The Nippon Foundation and its chairman, Yohei Sasakawa, have played a leading role in the fight against leprosy and the unfounded discrimination that accompanies the disease. This volume presents a collection of Sasakawa's “dispatches from the front" in that struggle. They furnish a gripping, firsthand account of the issues, the progress in overcoming them, and the challenges that remain.
Yohei Sasakawa, born in Tokyo in 1939, is the chairman of The Nippon Foundation, which conducts humanitarian assistance worldwide. He has served as the WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Leprosy Elimination since 2003 and as the Japanese government Goodwill Ambassador for the Human Rights of Persons Affected by Leprosy since 2007. Sasakawa has been engaged in the fight against leprosy and against related stigma and discrimination for more than 40 years.
