One of the best-studied populations with regard to Chagas disease is from the coastal area of northern Chile at the foot of the western Andean slopes between about 19 and 23 degrees of south latitude. The extremely arid climate here generates rapid, spontaneous desiccation of buried bodies, arresting the decay process. The absence of rainfall then preserves these dried bodies (mummies) for millennia, these conditions allow to elucidate the transmission dynamics and determinants of ancient genotypes, and to try to unravel the natural history of the T.

All Latin America has to honor the Carlos Chagas legacy and face such challenges.
