  • Sleeping Sickness

    Sleeping sickness, also called "human African trypanosomiasis", is a widespread tropical disease that can be fatal if not treated. It is spread by the bite of an infected tsetse fly (Glossina Genus), a species native to the African continent. Sixty million people who live mainly in rural parts of East, West and Central Africa are at risk of contracting sleeping sickness. MSF admitted 330 patients for sleeping sickness treatment in 2014, In 2013, 6,314 cases of sleeping sickness were recorded. However, the WHO believes this to be a fraction of the real number, with cases closer to 20,000 per year.
