CARVILLE STAR

As one of their ongoing programs, the Voyageurs Militaire offer continuing support of the publication, “The Carville Star,” which disseminates the information regarding the research into Hansen’s Disease (Leprosy) taking place in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  There they have been successful in isolating, controlling and soon, through their research, the development of a vaccine to prevent Hansen’s Disease.  “The Star” is published at the former United States Public Health Service Hospital located in Carville, Louisiana.  This patient-published publication carries the research works of not only this center, but those of the rest of the world, and is translated into and forwarded to 128 countries in addition to a circulation of more than 60,000 in the United States.
