Can leprosy be eradicated from India?

Can leprosy be eradicated from India?
Writing from the Medical College in Baroda, India, and the Health Policy Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the authors draw attention to the stated commitment of the Government of India to eradicate leprosy by the year 2000 and to the strong political will behind the leprosy programme in India, which is by far the largest in the world (4 million estimated cases in 1981).
