The Bergen International Conference on Hansen’s Disease

150 Years Since the Discovery of the Leprosy Bacillus

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the discovery of the leprosy-causing bacteria, Mycobacterium leprae, by Dr. Gerhard Armauer Hansen. To mark this historic anniversary, Sasakawa Leprosy (Hansen’s Disease) Initiative and the University of Bergen in Norway are organizing The Bergen International Conference on Hansen’s Disease:150 Years Since the Discovery of the Leprosy Bacillus on June 21-22, 2023.

Although leprosy can now be treated with multidrug therapy, delayed treatment can lead to lifelong disability and discrimination against those affected. The World Health Organization and other international organizations aim to eliminate leprosy by 2030, and the Bergen International Conference on Hansen’s Disease will bring together stakeholders from around the world to discuss medical, social, and historical aspects of leprosy. This conference is part of the “Don’t Forget Leprosy” campaign.

Good deals on accommodation in Bergen can be found in the registration form.

We look forward to seeing you!
