Namibia reached the Leprosy elimination status in the 1980s by WHO standards. 2007-09 showed an increase in the numbers of Leprosy cases in the country and in 2010, 42 cases were reported. The present research explored patient understanding of disease and treatment, and proposed ways of assisting and supporting them.
