The redeLEISH Network brings together leishmaniasis experts in Latin America to increase collaboration and maximize existing resources and expertise in areas where serious gaps exist.
The network promotes the sharing of information on treatment, diagnosis, and development of clinical trial design for cutaneous leishmaniasis. It also enables the exchange of technical and scientific knowledge among participants, and it contributes to the implementation of strategic policies and research priorities. Through the mapping of possible research centers and the implementation of training in Good Clinical Practice, redeLEISH also strengthens institutional capacity for clinical research.
redeLEISH comprises more than 130 representatives from over 60 institutions in 8 Latin American countries [Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Panama, Venezuela].
A web forum facilitates the exchange of information and technical discussions to support the implementation of clinical trials in the region. It was created in 2015 as a virtual tool to integrate its members and to promote dialogue among them, as well as to update the progress and implementation of clinical trials, provide documents and publication sharing and generate discussions on the challenges in the development of and access to treatments for CL.
