XIV Workshop on Chagas Disease
Advances in the prevention of Chagas disease
In accordance with the data of the World Health Organisation (WHO), the Chagas disease is one of the 17 neglected and forgotten illnesses of the planet. 6 million people suffer from it and there are near 35,800 new cases every year. More than 7,000 people die annually because of this illness. Nevertheless the Chagas disease is still a neglected illness both in the endemic countries and those regions where it is considered an emergent illness, such as the United States, Japan or Australia.
Organising Committee: Julio Alonso-Padilla, Montserrat Gállego, Joaquim Gascon, Jordi Gómez i Prat, Silvia Moriana, Carme Roca, M. Carmen Thomas, Leonardo de la Torre, M. Jesús Pinazo, Ethel Sequeira, Ivette Fernández.
