World Chagas Disease Day

Established by the UN in 2020, this day raises awareness to Chagas Disease – known as the ‘silent or silenced disease’, this affects mainly poor people without access to health care and people who lack a political voice. The disease progresses slowly and is often asymptomatic. Without treatment, Chagas disease leads to severe cardiac and digestive problems.
