Excerpt
Resurgence of sleeping sickness Human African trypanosomiasis, known as sleeping sickness, is a vector-borne parasitic disease. The parasites concerned are protozoa transmitted to humans by tsetse flies found in vegetation by rivers and lakes, gallery-forests and vast stretches of wooded savannah in Africa. Sleeping sickness occurs only in sub-Saharan Africa in regions where tsetse flies are endemic. For reasons not yet known, there are many regions where tsetse flies are found, but sleeping sickness is not. The rural populations that live in such environments and depend on them for agriculture, fishing, animal husbandry or hunting are the most exposed - along with their livestock. Another human form of trypanosomiasis occurs in the Americas and is known as Chagas disease.
