Contrary to what many think, Chagas disease still affects the health and quality of life of millions of people around the world, especially in Latin America where it is endemic. The problem is that the majority of those who are infected don’t know since they have never been diagnosed.

If left untreated, the disease can cause heart and digestive system problems years after infection.

In this video, follow Joanda’s daily journey, from her house to the treatment center for Chagas disease, while listening to different testimonies from patients and health professionals about this disease, it’s invisibility and its consequences.
