Chagas Disease

Since 2020, World Chagas Disease Day, on April 14th, provides a great opportunity to create more public visibility and awareness for the disease and the resources needed for the prevention, control or elimination of the disease. Chagas disease has been termed as a “silent and silenced disease”, not only because of its slowly progressing and frequently asymptomatic clinical course but also because it affects mainly poor people who have no political voice or access to health care. See our series of 10 video clips which highlight the challenges of this disease and provide information for patients.
