Description: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a protozoal disease estimated to affect 500 000 persons every year worldwide. In sub-saharan Africa, VL caused by L. donovani is endemic in remote regions of Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. In Uganda, the disease is not part of the routine national data collection systems and thus tends to be neglected by the central and district health authorities.
