Statement of Financial Condition






Tail, Weller & Baker, Certified Public Accountants, New York, Auditors, INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LEPROSY, on 15 March 1991 transmitted the following audited financial statements for 1990 to the Board of Directors, UL, with the following report:

"We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LEPROSY of the International Leprosy Association as of December 31, 1990 and 1989, and the related statements of revenues, expenses and changes in unrestricted fund balance, and changes in financial position for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the organization's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

"We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements arc free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

"In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF LEPROSY of the International Leprosy Association as of December 31, 1990 and 1989, and the results of its operations, the changes in its fund balances, and the changes in its financial position for the years then ended, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles."
