The situation of sleeping sickness in Angola: a calamity.

Author information

Ministério da Saúde, Instituto de Combate e de Controlo das Tripanossomíases, Luanda, Angola.


Although nearly one-fifth of the Angolan population is at risk of becoming infected with trypanosomiasis, only 6% currently have access to surveillance and treatment because of the war and its resultant destruction of the country's infrastructure. The paper outlines the history of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) control activities in Angola and sums up what measures need to be taken to re-establish them.
