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.
In order to tackle this disease and update and share the latest scientific knowledge on it, we are pleased to announce that the 16th Workshop on Chagas disease will take place on March 12th, 2020 at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Barcelona. This edition is entitled "Health care focused on people who live with T. cruzi infection-Chagas disease". You will find the schedule, deadline for abstract presentation (January 22th, 2020), and registration procedure, below or on the right side of this page.
