Uncertainty, Anxiety, Fragality:
Dealing with Leprosy in the Dutch East Indies, 1816-1942
Leo Van Bergen
The traditional method of colonial regimes in dealing with leprosy sufferers in their subject populations was to shut them off from society in designated enclaves while offering little in the way of healing. In the Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia, the authorities adopted a similar policy for a while, but, even though few resources were devoted to care, they were prepared to experiment with varying policies, including traditional healing, as described here.
