A large number of crusaders were diagnosed with leprosy because they traveled throughout the world having contact with people who had leprosy. Crusaders who came down with leprosy would leave their homes and wander around the world with cloth or rags wrapped around their bodies. The monks were the only people who cared for the lepers.

This is why it is very important that education about this disease, and the medication for this disease is available for people around the world.
