MSF’s mobile sleeping sickness team are working in areas throughout central Africa. The international team, made up of a laboratory technician, a medical doctor, two logisticians and a project coordinator, work together with national doctors, nurses, laboratory staff, logisticians and community outreach workers, in countries with a high prevalence and/or historical foci of sleeping sickness to implement active village screening and treatment, along with training, surveillance, and advocacy. The aim is simple: to save lives and work together with national programmes toward sustained elimination of the disease in the areas in which we are working.
