Chagas disease and leishmaniasis are important conditions that still affect millions of people, with significant medical, social and economic implications. The annual meetings on Chagas disease and leishmaniasis are outstanding forums for discussing new findings regarding different aspects of these diseases and for planning control strategies, which involve large numbers of young and senior researchers. Thus, such meetings must continue to vigorously represent the struggle against these diseases.
