Result of a first step toward community-based surveillance of transmission of Chagas' disease with appropriate technology in rural areas.
The objective of this work was to develop an effective methodology for the surveillance of Chagas'disease vectors in rural areas.
It was based on the use of sensor boxes and portable mini-pumps to be integrated into the regular health promotion activities of the Primary Health Care (PHC) agents.
The proposed methodology involves a continuous passive intradomiciliary detection of triatomines b, sensor boxes that are monitored quarterly by PHC agents.
Insecticidal treatment of the houses was performed immediately after the detection of triatomines.
