 en Certifying the interruption of Chagas disease transmission by native vectors: cui bono?
Abad-Franch, Fernando; Diotaiuti, Liléia; Gurgel-Gonçalves, Rodrigo & Gürtler, Ricardo E.

Abstract

Certifying the absence of Chagas disease transmission by native vectors lacks scientific grounds and weakens long-term control-surveillance systems to the detriment of people living under risk conditions. Instead, a regular “certification of good practice” (including vector control-surveillance, case detection/patient care and blood safety) could help achieve sustained disease control.

Keywords
