“It was the best way to confirm that all the experience I had gained over the course of my professional life had been good for something.” This was the clear and emphatic verdict expressed by Dr. Karina Egüez, departmental head of the Chagas diagnosis programme in Chuquisaca (Bolivia), after participating as a trainer in the most recent seminar on the comprehensive management of Chagas disease in urban areas, held in Asunción (Paraguay) in January.

Under the umbrella of the European Union’s ADELANTE 2 Window, which promotes triangular cooperation in Latin America and Caribbean, this training programme provides a venue for Bolivian and Paraguayan professionals to share their knowledge and experiences with the aim of improving Chagas care in Paraguay. The effort is being coordinated by ISGlobal and Juan Misael Saracho Autonomous University (Tarija, Bolivia), together with Paraguay’s National Malaria Eradication Service (SENEPA), which oversees the national Chagas programme.
