Human sleeping sickness in Lambwe Valley. (The present state)



Human sleeping sickness in Lambwe Valley. (The present state)



Proceedings of the Working Seminar on animal and human trypanosomiasis in Lambwe Valley, 17-18 November 1980, Homa Bay, Kenya: 12-14



A brief account is given of trypanosomiasis (Trypanosoma rhodesiense) in the Lambwe Valley, Kenya. The parasite was introduced from the Busoga district of Uganda in the early 1950s and cases of trypanosomiasis, first diagnosed in 1960, increased up to 1967-1970 when a vector control programme was implemented. The number of cases then decreased, but the area remains endemic.
