Abstract

African sleeping sickness is a severe disease in Boma, DRC that takes the lives of many. To counter this disease we distributed ITN's in Boma using a similar process as used in Tanzania to combat malaria in 2005. Our goal was to distribute ITN's to 25% of the at risk population of Boma. Based on the success of the Tanzania Net Program, we expect the cases of HAT to decrease significantly over the next year.
