Visceral leishmaniasis, commonly known as Kala-azar is a neglected tropical parasitic disease affecting the poorest of the poor and is targeted for elimination as a public health problem. The elimination of kala-azar refers to reducing the cases to a level where it is no longer a public health problem and the target is set to achieve less than one kala-azar case per 10,000 population annually, at the district or sub-district level. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), if the disease is left untreated, the death rate could go up to 100% in the developing countries within 2 years. The WHO organized a virtual meeting to focus on the eradication of this disease. Prof. A P Dash, VC, AIPH University participated as an expert in the Technical Advisory Group of the World Health Organization for Kala-azar elimination through a virtual meeting on October 2020.
