Chagas Disease: Update on progress and future perspectives


This document is intended to provide an overview of American trypanosomiasis or Chagas’ disease. It is meant for both medical and non-medical readers, and seeks to present a comprehensive view on both the current situation and future perspectives for the disease, focusing either on the issues where a global consensus does not exist or where an improvement of the situation is generally considered as needed.

The information presented here is not intended to replace or amend current national policies.

We hope that this document will facilitate efforts to guarantee future wider availability of Chagas’ disease diagnostic and treatment, and stimulate MSF to continue or even increase its valuable work on one of the most neglected tropical diseases.
