In 2010, we began a period of important partnerships and assumed a leadership role before the following global and national entities:

  • World Health Organization (WHO): In April 2017, we participated in the Global Partners Meeting on Neglected Tropical Diseases. Also in that year we established a partnership between both institutions to strengthen access to diagnosis and treatment of Chagas disease.
  • Pan American Health Organization (PAHO): Since 2016, we maintain official relations with this entity. This was possible after an exhaustive process of analyzing the management and collaborations between the Foundation and PAHO.
  • Global Chagas Coalition: We are one of its Founding Members, together with DNDi, the Sabin Vaccine Institute, ISGlobal and CEADES.
  • STH Coalition: We are engaged in this working group that seeks to increase the efforts in addressing geohelminthiasis.
  • Uniting to Combat NTDs: We are the only Latin American organization participating in this international coalition created to reduce the impact of ten neglected tropical diseases. It is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • Alliance for the control and interruption of vector transmission of Chagas disease in Central America and Mexico: The members of this alliance are Fundación Mundo Sano, DNDi and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), from Canada, working under a framework collaboration agreement for the development of a project in areas of high Chagas transmission in Guatemala, with the participation of local authorities and universities.
  • Foro del Sector Social: We are engaged in its Health Group and we are members of the steering committee.
  • Grupo de Fundaciones y Empresas (GDFE): We participate in its Affinity Health Group, in corporate volunteer activities and in the General Assembly of Partners.
  • Harvard University: We have signed a framework cooperation agreement with the T.H. Chan School of Public Health of Harvard University.
  • Sports, Children and Chagas: We signed a non-reimbursable technical cooperation agreement with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in its capacity as administrator of the Japan Special Fund for Poverty Reduction (JPO), with the aim of contributing to the reduction of the impact of the Chagas disease in the Gran Chaco region that includes Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay.
  • General University Hospital of Valencia: Based on this agreement, we developed programs for the prevention, training, diagnosis and treatment of Chagas disease aimed at Latin American migrant communities in conjunction with patient associations.
  • Carlos III Hospital of Madrid; Center for Research in International Health of Barcelona (CRESIB); ISGlobal and Hospital Ramón y Cajal. We have signed cooperation agreements with all these institutions.
