New Contributions to the Elimination of Chagas Disease as a Public Health Problem: Towards the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030

Abstract
Despite being described for the first time more than 110 years ago, Chagas disease persists as one of the most neglected tropical diseases. There are limited new treatment options, and diagnosis, surveillance, and control face major bottlenecks. Morbidity and mortality are still high in many settings, both in endemic and non-endemic areas. This Special Issue of Tropical Medicine and Infectious Diseases contains a total of 14 peer-reviewed papers (one editorial, eight original papers, three reviews, one case report, and one opinion paper). The papers span a variety of disciplines and contribute significantly to reduce the gap in scientific knowledge on Chagas disease, towards the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 [1].
