About Dr. Sunil Deepak

(Updated in July 2016)

My name is Sunil. I am originally from India and live between India (based in Gurgaon, NCR) and Italy (based in Schio, VI). I am responsible of the creation, design and running of this trilingual webzine.

I am a medical doctor and my professional areas of expertise are community health, community-based rehabilitation (CBR), leprosy control & rehabilitation and Community-based Inclusive Development (CBID). For almost three decades, I was working for an Italian grassroots organisation called Aifo, first as the head of its international projects department and later as the head of its scientific support department. Over the years I have also worked with different U.N. organizations especially the World Health Organization (WHO) and many NGOs. During my professional carrier I have held other important positions such as being the president of ILEP (International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations).   

Between December 2014 and April 2016, I was based in Guwahati (Assam, India) as head of the north-east office of Mobility India.

Since May 2016, I divide my time between Italy and India. I am available for short term assignments related to training, research and evaluation in the areas of disability, community-based rehabilitation (CBR), DPOs, leprosy and community health. I am happy to collaborate free of cost with small NGOs and grassroots organisations.
