African trypanosomiasis or “Sleeping sickness” A bio-mathematical study of the disease African trypanosomiasis, commonly known as sleeping sickness, is one of . Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) or sleeping sickness is considered lethal if left untreated. Pathogenesis of African sleeping sickness is highly complex. The Author: Jennifer Cnops, Stefan Magez. Tsetse flies (Glossina) are obligate bloodsucking medical and veterinary important vectors of trypanosome which causes African sleeping sickness in humans and nagana .
Overview. Background: Following World Health Assembly resolutions in and in , the World Health Organization (WHO) committed itself to supporting human African trypanosomiasis (HAT)-endemic countries in their efforts to remove the disease as a public health problem. A different group of diseases such as human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), Chagas disease and leishmania-sis, are characterized by the limited availability of safe and cost-effective control tools. This group includes infections of complex epidemiology, which, if untreated, can result in very high death rates. Strategies to control.

The effects of seasonal variations on the epidemiology of Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense disease is well documented. In particular, seasonal variations alter vector development rates and behaviour, thereby influencing the transmission dynamics of the disease. In this paper, a mathematical model for Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense > disease that incorporates seasonal effects is presented.
port a population of flies even when alternative hosts are heavily depleted. The data available therefore provide the possibility of developing temperature-driven mod-els for tsetse population dynamics. Such models could be used to predict the present and future Climate change and African trypanosomiasis vector populations.
