1) Objective

Sasakawa Health Foundation (SHF) is now calling for grant applications for Hansen’s disease-related projects. Through its grant program, Sasakawa Health Foundation promotes the early detection and treatment of Hansen’s disease patients in countries that still see many new cases, and works toward the realization of a society free from stigma and discrimination in which persons affected by Hansen’s disease and their families are accepted and have access to all necessary treatment and services.

They support activities:

  • Tackling Disease: Activities aimed at providing high-quality Hansen’s disease services in endemic countries, including early detection, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitation. Priority countries are those reporting more than 1,000 annual new cases or with a disease prevalence rate above 1.0 per 10,000 population.
  • Fighting Discrimination: Initiatives to empower persons affected by Hansen’s disease, eliminate stigma and discrimination, and strengthen their organizations. This includes organizational strengthening, human resource development, educational support for affected children, and activities to deepen understanding and awareness. Priority countries include those with high disease burden and where discrimination is prevalent.
  • Preserving History: Efforts to preserve the history of Hansen’s disease, focusing on medical and social impacts, and the resilience of affected individuals. Activities include collecting and preserving historical materials, human resource development for history preservation, awareness-raising, advocacy, and research. Priority countries are those where activities can serve as models or contribute to expertise transfer.

2) Eligibility
