    About This Project

    Leishmaniasisis a neglected tropical parasitic diseases in the world and is spread by the bite of sand flies. 78% of people living in the Madawachchiya area in Sri Lanka are bitten by sand flies. Many remote areas have a higher burden of leishmaniasis, despite being far away from clinical and public health services. Our research will evaluate the efficacy of a comprehensive public health intervention based out of a mobile vector clinic on reducing leishmaniasis breeding environmentand disease.
