African Sleeping Sickness

African Sleeping Sickness, aka African Trypanosomiasis is transmitted by a bite from the Tsetse Fly which looks as harmless as a fly you might see in your home and which grows from 7mm to 15mm.

It is common in many sub-Saharan African countries and more so in rural areas where transmission occurs more frequently due to exposure to the flies when people are involved in agriculture, fishing, animal husbandry and hunting.  There are 2 main types to this disease:

  • Rhodesian
  • Gambian
