Dear KP, dear all:

I have been invited as WHO expert in the Madrid symposium on VL 
outbreaks (see announcement sent by Jeffrey last 15 March) to give a 
talk on VL reservoirs.

Please find attached the slide I presented relevant to any suspected 
wild reservoir of VL in the Old World, which was mainly based on a 
recent review paper by Quinnell & Courtenay (2009). At the bottom of 
the copied table I have also included the missing information 
provided by Liao LiFu paper on Lepus yarkandenensis, found naturally 
infected by L.infantum in Tarim basin, China .

Interestingly, I also found reference to this finding in Liao Lifu et 
al, Proceedings of the 4th World Congress on Leishmaniasis 
[WorldLeish4], Lucknow, India 3rd-7th Feb 2009, p.178.

Best regards
