LEPRA is a part of the RePORT* India Consortium, a bilateral, multi‐organisational collaborative effort that was established under the Indo‐U.S. Vaccine Action Program (VAP) to address the threat of tuberculosis (TB).

Recently this consortium has become a part of the RePORT International Consortium which includes
RePORT consortia from India, Brazil, Indonesia and South Africa. The International Consortium is meeting at Durban, South Africa in July 2016 to provide a forum for RePORT investigators to interact with select leaders in TB biomarkers research as well as with leaders in development of TB vaccines, drugs and/or diagnostics.

The primary purpose of the Common Protocol is to establish an Indian bio‐repository and associated database of well characterised and standardised specimens and data for future TB research
