Matsuki Miyazaki, MD (1900-1972) was a great humanitarian and a noted Japanese authority on leprosy. He worked out of the Kaifuen Leprosarium in Japan until his retirement in 1958 when he was selected to go to India as director of the India Center, Japan Leprosy Mission for Asia (JALMA) at Agra. The center, a gift to India from JALMA, was opened and Dr. Miyazaki and his medical staff treated and rehabilitated leprosy patients and trained Indian doctors in his methods. He was known to his patients in India as the "Schweitzer of Japan."
