Archival Preservation: the Memory of the Experience of Leprosy in Brazil

 

In collaboration with MORHAN and with support from the ILA Global Project on the History of Leprosy, students have started to identify and document the records in thirteen of the leprosy colonies in Brazil.

This initiative was launched with a workshop in March 2007, and with the support of the Ministry of Health, and under the supervision and organisation of Dr Lavínia Schüler-Faccini, MD PhD, Departamento de Genetica / Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and Silvania Rosa.

This follows on from Resolution 41 of the Relatório Consolidado do 1 Seminário Nacional de Antigos Hospitais. Colônia de Hanséniase (5-7 Nov 2004) which called for documentation and research centres to be created to preserve the memories of the experience of leprosy. This resolution called for an inventory of the documents, books, patient records and photographs in the leprosy colonies of Brazil. The object of this was to make them accessible to the community.

This project is also drawing upon expertise from historians and archivists such as Juliane Primon Serres and Éverton Reis Quevedo who have both been involved in the preservation of history in the colony of Itapua.
