Abstract

Objectives: The Public Policies referred to the control of the physical disabilities in leprosy (PDL) during the 1995-2005 decade are our main interest. Material and Methods: Wide-ranging thematic revision on official texts of the World Health Organization and of the Brazilian Ministry of Health, published during the mentioned period. Results: We have been able to aim evidences which pointed to the consideration that Public Policies related to the PDL are issued on a secondary level, essentially in function of the drug treatment, considered as priority against the endemic disease. Conclusions: We may conclude that, due to mistakes done specifically to the PDL and in general to the illness itself, commitments referring to the elimination of the leprosy were frustrate repeated times, unfortunately, mainly in our country.
