Stakeholders call on WHO to lead a network aimed at elimination of human African trypanosomiasis
28 March 2014 | Geneva
A WHO-led network has been established to ensure a coordinated, strengthened and sustained effort to eliminate human African trypanosomiasis (HAT).
The decision to establish the network came at the end of a meeting of stakeholders on HAT (also known as sleeping sickness).
It groups together national sleeping sickness control programmes, groups developing new tools to fight the disease, international and non-governmental organizations and donors.
The meeting took place in Geneva on 25 – 27 March 2014.
