Chagas Disease - Treatment

Have you ever heard of Chagas disease? Did you know that it is a neglected and forgotten disease?

Although it affects between 6 and 7 million people in the world, it has this connotation because it mainly affects low-income populations with limited access to health services.

The parasite that causes it, Trypanosoma cruzi can spend years and even decades before manifesting itself in symptoms that, in the worst cases, affect the heart and other organs.


The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is an international non-profit developing safe, effective, and affordable treatments for the most neglected patients. https://dndi.org
