Proposed strategy for Leishmania species identification. Diagram of a proposed strategy using aap3-HRM for species identification. For VL patients from the Americas, amplicon 1 would suffice, while for VL patients from Eurasia and Africa we suggest the use of either amplicon 2 alone or amplicon 1 and 2. For patients with CL and MCL form the Americas, we suggest the use of both amplicon 1 and 3
