World Chagas Disease Day

World Chagas Disease Day is observed every year on 14 April. This disease is also called American trypanosomiasis/silent/silent disease. The purpose of celebrating this day is to increase public awareness and visibility of the resources needed for the prevention, control or eradication of Chagas disease. This year the day was observed under the theme ‘Finding and reporting every case to defeat Chagas disease’.

This disease is called a silent or silent disease because no symptoms are seen when this infected disease occurs. Not only this, the patient himself does not initially realize that he is getting infected with this disease. Around 6-7 million people worldwide are infected with Chagas disease, of which 10,000 people die each year. Given the severity of the disease, it has been included in 11 official global public health campaigns identified by the World Health Organization.
