Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Approval of the study was obtained from the Ethical Committee of the School of Medicine in San Simon University. The research team attended monthly community meetings organized by the board of the Local Farmers Union. The community received information on leishmaniasis disease, as well as the nature and importance of the study. The researchers asked for permission from the population to proceed with the study. Individual written consent was signed by each participant and for children under 15 years old, written consent was also sought from their parents. No incentives were provided to participants.Participants with parasitological confirmation of active CL were assisted with diagnosis and treatment free of charge. Participants with skin scars due to past chronic skin ulcers that resulted positive to MST were assessed looking for signs of reactivation of CL and mucosal complications. Given that none of the participants showed these problems, they were advised to contact the researchers in case any sign or symptom suggestive of these problems would appear.
