MetadataShow full item record
[Introduction]. Since 2012, the year of the beginning of the Regional Information System for Leishmaniases in the Americas (SisLeish), countries have been making great effort to include the data within the required time, which is April 30th of the subsequent year. One of the performance indicators of the Plan of Action for Leishmaniases in the Americas 2017-2022 is the number of endemic countries that timely report the cutaneous/mucosal and visceral leishmaniasis data at the second administrative political level in SisLeish. In 2013, from the 17 countries that report data to PAHO/WHO, 29% entered the data until the scheduled date, 18% up to three months later (July 30th) and 53% six months later (October 30th).
