Abstract (english text)
This study aims to explore and evaluate, with the support of Geodesign, a model for visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in the Pontal do Paranapanema region of Brazil. We created a framework through assessment analysis, with the layers consisting of entomological, VL reports, socioeconomic, and environmental variables. Data analysis was crafted using a geographic information system (GIS) to evaluate 53 municipalities. Lutzomyia longipalpis presence was associated with VL and both displayed southeastern expansion as well as an association with land surface temperature in the hottest and driest areas, modified vegetation, and roads. This innovative Geodesign approach unites technology and community stakeholders to collectively.
