World Chagas Day: 5 Problems and a Series of Solutions

World Chagas Day: 5 Problems and a Series of Solutions

14.4.2016

On the occasion of the World Chagas Day, ISGlobal has published a special digital report on the main obstacles and a series of solutions to break the silence on Chagas disease.

We invite you to read the report and spread the voice to break the silence that weighs on Chagas disease

Despite the fact that today there are 25 million people at risk and more than 6 million infected people, Chagas has been, and remains, a silent and silenced disease. Silent because of the lack of specific symptoms at the time of infection and to the time elapsed before the onset of cardiac alterations in around 30% of chronic patients. Silenced because its transmission is linked to poverty and its magnitude, even in the 21st century, is largely unknown.

We invite you to read the report and spread the voice to break the silence that weighs on Chagas disease.
