 en Certifying achievement in the control of Chagas disease native vectors: what is a viable scenario?
Hashimoto, Ken & Yoshioka, Kota


As an evaluation scheme, we propose certifying for “control”, as alternative to “interruption”, of Chagas disease transmission by native vectors, to project a more achievable and measurable goal and sharing good practices through an “open online platform” rather than “formal certification” to make the key knowledge more accumulable and accessible.

Chagas disease; vector control; Interruption of transmission; control of transmission; certification
