Mobile workers in northern Ethiopia are vulnerable to the transmission of visceral leishmaniasis – Science Daily

Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a life-threatening disease transmitted by bite sand flies. Between 3700 and 7,400 people are infected each year in Ethiopia, particularly in northern farming areas with a favorable climate and environment for sand flying vectors. The study suggests that the transitional population in Ethiopia may be particularly sensitive to the acquisition and death of VL infections.
