Abstract

The zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis is the most severe clinical form of leishmaniasis and is considered an emerging disease by the World Health Organization. In São Paulo, the first autochthonous case was detected in 1998, in the same way that expansion occurs into urban areas all over Brazil since the 1980s, the disease has expanded to other municipalities' urban areas of the São Paulo, representing a major problem public health. Previous studies have been correlated the incidence of human disease with occurrence of canine zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis. One of the main strategies to control the disease is culling infected dogs. However, despite efforts to control, the disease's incidence remains high in Brazil. This project aims to point out the socio-epidemiologic and in applications of control measures differences among municipalities of Araçatuba and Birigüi. The control will be assessed based on their actions: relative importance of covering canine tracking, effectiveness of serological diagnosis and the delay between the diagnosis and the canine sacrifice, and effectiveness of canine zoonotic visceral leishmaniasis elimination as a control strategy. The study will analyse both the population of domestic dogs as community dogs, using for this serologic surveys and experiments in capture-mark-recapture. The result of analyses will be putting in a dynamic's models of zoonotic transmission of canine visceral leishmaniasis associated with cost-effectiveness for assess the control actions directed to canine disease in order to determine the best control effort at the lowest possible cost.
