Setting the Post-Elimination Agenda for Kala-Azar in India

About Us

Our background

In the Indian subcontinent, visceral leishmaniasis is a serious public health problem. To reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with the disease, the governments of India, Bangladesh and Nepal launched a regional initiative in 2005 to eliminate visceral leishmaniasis as a public health problem by 2015.  

Our aim

SPEAK India brings together researchers and technical experts alike, with an aim to develop a consensus on the additional knowledge required to ensure visceral leishmaniasis transmission is successfully interrupted and elimination is sustained.
