India: what stigmatized patients need – besides medical treatment 

Understanding patients’ needs, care that goes beyond medical treatment and technical aid – we all have heard about it, but what it really means to be and to conduct a meaningful life as a stigmatized patient is often still not researched enough and definitely underestimated.

I had a chance to learn about a special training with leprosy patients and to do an interview with the trainer who is specialized in supporting human beings with life skills, people who – due to their disease – are escluded from society.

Watch the interview/video:

Talking to Dr Magi about daily life challenges of stigmatized patients


It was a learning I will definitely never forget.
