Monday 8 May 2017 - Fixing houses to fight Chagas disease
Chagas disease is caused by a parasite transmitted to humans by a large bloodsucking insect called a triatomine, which lives in the walls and roofs of rural mudbrick houses in Latin America. In the southern Bolivian villages where we work, more than half the people are infected and about a third develop potentially fatal Chagas heart disease. Come and learn about the disease and our project to improve houses using local materials to reduce places for the insects to hide and prevent children from becoming infected in the first place.
Please note: This event will take place in the Oculus Building, OC0.03 from 18:00 - 20:00. Registration is now open, please register to attend.
Led by Professor Caryn Bern, UCSF.
