  • Workshop objectives


  • To provide a better understanding of the current epidemiological status of Chagas disease in the Amazon, discussing the impact of environmental changes and how to integrate public health and social features for a better management of the disease. This will be done through three Scientific Sessions:
    • Chagas disease ecology in Amazonia: vectors, reservoirs, habitats, and transmission
    • Anthropogenic environmental change and Chagas disease eco-epidemiology
    • Human societies, perceptions and practices


  • To discuss and develop improved research approaches and disease prevention strategies. This will be done through Working Groups:
    • Research needs and strategies
    • Disease prevention strategies: prospects and future trends


  • To deliver a document summarizing the meetings' conclusions and recommendations
  • To formally constitute a scientific network for infectious disease research in Amazonia
  • To define potential work packages for further call proposals
