C E Borda, M J Rea
1981 Bulletin of the Pan American Health Organization  
A survey conducted near a dam-site on the Paraguay-Argentine border showed the area to be highly endemic for Chagas' disease. It also showed that new housing unsuited to the disease vector's prol$eration did not eliminate the prob-/em, indicating a strong need for health education capable of guiding people away from traditional behavior patterm tending to encourage the vector and cause infection.
