The German leprosy and tuberculosis aid (DAHW) has received medical treatment or social support from the sick and disabled. The registered association was founded in 1957 as a "German leprosy relief organization".Since then, the DAHW - independent of political or denominational convictions - has been providing sustainable assistance to sick and marginalized people in developing and newly industrialized countries.
At the beginning of 2003 the association renamed itself to the tuberculosis also in the name to represent. The abbreviation DAHW is used for better recognition in donors and long-term conveyors.
Approximately 70,000 people annually trust DAHW donations, many of them already for decades.For many years, the charity has received the donation seal from the German Central Institute for Social Issues (DZI) for the responsible treatment of donations.
Within the framework of the transparency award of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen and the auditing company PriceWaterhouseCoopers, DAHW Deutsche Lepra- und Tuberkulosehilfe eV is awarded for high-quality reporting in 2010
