Role of environmental factors in the present resurgence of human African trypanosomiasis



Role of environmental factors in the present resurgence of human African trypanosomiasis



Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique 87(5/5 bis): 303-306



A decrease in the parasite reservoir is highlighted as the major target for the prevention of human african trypanosomiasis (HAT). HAT patients have to be identified and treated, and contact between humans and vectors has to be stopped. The environmental factors that could be involved in a HAT outbreak are reviewed. Political involvement leading to increases in resources would strengthen HAT prevention schemes.
