The Initiative

Chagas disease is one of the most neglected tropical diseases worldwide, affecting over 300,000 individuals in the United States and 8-10 million worldwide. 

It is a disease that can affect the heart and intestines, killing up to one fourth to one third of the people it infects.

Strong Hearts is committed to raising awareness about Chagas disease and establishing screening and treatment protocols in Massachusetts that can eventually be applied broadly in the United States.
