Bottom Line: The analyses showed that the use of an automated database allied with geoprocessing tools may favor control measures of VL, especially with regard to the evaluation of control actions carried out.Descriptive analyses of control measures allowed to evaluating that the information system and GIS tools promoted greater efficiency in making decisions and planning activities.These analyses also pointed to the necessity of new approaches to the control of VL in large urban centers.

ABSTRACT
The aim of this paper is to report a brief history of control actions for Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) from 2006 to 2010 in the Sanitary District (DS) of Venda Nova, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, focusing on the use of information systems and Geographic Information System (GIS) tools. The analyses showed that the use of an automated database allied with geoprocessing tools may favor control measures of VL, especially with regard to the evaluation of control actions carried out. Descriptive analyses of control measures allowed to evaluating that the information system and GIS tools promoted greater efficiency in making decisions and planning activities. These analyses also pointed to the necessity of new approaches to the control of VL in large urban centers.

Mentions: The analyses of the incidence rates of VL human cases, the lethality of the disease, and its geographic spread in Venda Nova SD revealed the necessity to employ new approaches in control of VL (Figures 2 and 5). Data of control measures referring to canine reservoir showed that Venda Nova SD performs a significant number of serological tests in its canine population (2006: 32.0% of the population was tested, 2007: 69.5%, 2008: 68.3%, 2009: 58.0,%, 2010: 82.9%).
