The Resolution ‘Chagas Disease: Control and Elimination’ to be adopted by the WHO is a step in the right direction but lacks essential elements
At the ‘World Health Assembly’ (May 17-22, 2010) in Geneva, the resolution ‘Chagas Disease: Control and Elimination’ is about to be adopted by the World Health Organization (WHO). Although this is a step in the right direction, the resolution lacks essential elements. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and Drugs for Neglected Disease initiative (DNDi) call on WHO Member States to include in the resolution the integration of treatment and diagnosis at the primary healthcare level and increased efforts in research and development.
