Population movements, borders, and Chagas disease

Abstract: Currently, Chagas disease is a complex global health problem with local and global implications. In the present article, we approach this complexity from the perspective of human mobility and its effects on people’s health in places of origin and in transit and destination. We raise key concepts such as human mobility - understood as a possible socio-structural and economic determination of health -, the associated social and institutional barriers and the processes of social exclusion related to Chagas diseas… Show more

“…Chagas disease has been included among the neglected diseases worldwide, with ∼6-7 million people globally affected, with 20-30% cardiomyopathy and death rates (2). Originally restricted to rural endemic Latin American areas, Chagas cases have been since reported in several urban areas of the Americas including Canada as well as the African, Eastern Mediterranean, European, and Western Pacific countries, associated with environmental changes and increased human mobility (3). In Latin America, established endemic areas have covered 21 countries, with ∼100 million exposed individuals (2).…”

Esta "cara" tradicional del Chagas complejizando y complejizando continuamente y remite a las características del capitalismo mundial global, con las migraciones rural-urbana e internacionales como una de sus consecuencias (24).…”
