Summary "This report makes recommendations on new therapeutic regimens for visceral and cutaneous leishmaniasis, on the use of rapid diagnostic tests, details on the management of Leishmania-HIV coinfection and consideration of social factors and climate change as risk factors for increased spread. Recommendations for research include the furtherance of epidemiological knowledge of the disease and clinical studies to address the lack of an evidence-based therapeutic regimen for cutaneous and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis and post-kala-azar dermal leishmaniasis (PKDL). This report not only provides clear guidance on implementation but should also raise awareness about the global burden of leishmaniasis and its neglect. It puts forward directions for formulation of national control programmes and elaborates the strategic approaches in the fight against the leishmaniases. The committee's work reflects the latest scientific and other relevant developments in the field of leishmaniasis that can be considered by Member States when setting national programmes and making public health decisions."--P.
