Abstract
Chagas disease is an important health problem in Latin America. Due to the mobility of Latin American population, the disease has spread to other countries. In this work, we used a mathematical model to gain insight into the disease dynamics in a scenario without vector presence as well as to assess the epidemiological effects provided by control strategies. © 2018 Copyright held by the owner/author(s).
