Images from the History of Leprosy


Missionary work in Chitokoloki, Africa, 1935. Mrs. George Suckling and her assistant are shown with patients at the small, remote hospital in Chitokoloki in what is now Zambia. In this pre-dapsone era, no specific treatment was available and only supportive care could be offered. The image is electronically reproduced from an original black and white print measuring 4 × 6 inches, and was made available courtesy of Mrs. Linda Beer-Kumwenda.
