Links Policy


The Leprosy Mission’s approach to external linking


How links are chosen for the website of the Leprosy Mission [Southern Africa]


We select links that are relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.


These links are included for a number of reasons, including:


  • for further relevant information or other key source material
  • for background information
  • for useful practical information


Requests for links should be sent to


Links to external websites


External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, the Leprosy Mission is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:


  • the Leprosy Mission does not produce them or maintain/update them
  • the Leprosy Mission cannot change them
  • they can be changed without the Leprosy Mission’s knowledge .


The inclusion of a link to an external website from the Leprosy Mission is not an endorsement of that website. The views expressed are not those of the Leprosy Mission.



The word “leper” is highly offensive and stigmatizing and is not used by the Leprosy Mission. It is possible that external websites may use this word.
