From this year, MSF is launching the central information system called eMOCHA in three municipalities within Narciso Campero Province in Bolivia. This system is a technological breakthrough that enables people to report the location of triatomine bugs or 'kissing bugs', the vector insects for Chagas disease, by sending an SMS so they can be removed quickly and efficiently.
