Predicted number of cases as function of PHE. We computed the number of new cases per human per year based on the model output indices: VI and PVH. Additionally for this calculation, we considered reported values such as proportion of infected insects, insect biting rate, triatomine feeding rate on humans and probability of transmission per contact with an infected triatomine. For our study area, Chavinave village, the model predicted 8 cases per 1,000 people per year. For further details, see Additional file 1
