Globala dagen för Chagas sjukdom

World Chagas Disease Day firas den 14 april för att öka medvetenheten kring Chagas sjukdom. Den firades första gången den 14 april 2020 och döptes efter Carlos Ribeiro Justiniano Chagas, den brasilianska läkaren som diagnostiserade det första fallet den 14 april 1909.

Detta är en av WHO:s internationella dagar som uppmärksammar en sjukdom:

In 2024 we are shining a spotlight on Chagas disease, the suffering it causes and are calling for equitable access to health care and services for everyone affected by the disease.

The theme for 2024 is Tackling Chagas disease: detect early and care for life, to increase public awareness of Chagas disease and secure greater funding and support for early diagnosis and comprehensive follow-up care initiatives.

Chagas disease is prevalent among poor populations of continental Latin America but is increasingly being detected in other countries and continents.

It is often termed as a “silent and silenced disease” as the infected majority have no symptoms or extremely mild symptom. There are approximately 6-7 million people infected with Chagas disease worldwide, with 12,000 deaths, every year.
