The evaluation of an anti-leprosy program in Ueles (1975-1989): Foperda, who took over and continued the work initiated in 1924 by the Congo Red Cross, is responsible for the programme of fight against leprosy in the Ueles region (Zaire). Important results have been obtained since 1975 in the framework of a specialised medical service. These results are exposed and discussed herebelow. The evolution of the endemic leprosy in the region under survey allows to contemplate new trends for the pursuit of the programme in the coming years (controlled integration within polyvalent health services)
