In 2016, Tanzania was granted a three years project “Enhancing active case finding and early case detection through contact screening in three endemic districts of Tanzania.” supported by Bangkok Declaration special fund (BDSF). This project aimed to ensure early leprosy case finding and treatment in order to interrupt the chain of transmission especially among 2 household members of index cases.
