Every hour, a baby is born somewhere in the world with Chagas disease.
An infected mother can transmit the disease to her baby during pregnancy.
In light of this unfairness, we decided to make a firm commitment to give every child-bearing age female, especially during pregnancy, and all babies born to affected mothers, access to diagnosis and treatment.
With origin in Latin America, today the Chagas disease has global incidence, particularly in the US and Spain.
We take a strong stance against the human and social drama of this disease given that its diagnosis and treatment are so simple, inexpensive and non invasive.
Our commitment is driven by the false perception that the disease, and the stigma it attaches, have been overcome.
