Strengthening cutaneous leishmaniasis control in Guatemala

As part of its support to the Ministry of Health of Guatemala, WHO will support the national strategic fight against leishmaniasis, through intervention lines like active search for cases, raising awareness at community level and training healthcare personnes in the diagnosis and case management. 

The Head of the World Program for the Control of Leishmaniasis at the WHO headquarters in Geneva Switzerland, Jose Antonio Ruiz Postigo, traveled to the field to follow up the project that since 2016 is implementing activities related to the main intervention lines described above.
