Swat Sleeping Sickness: A Call to Action


Follow MSF's innovative mobile medical team that is currently tackling Human African Trypanosomiasis, better known as sleeping sickness. Watch as they travel by plane, 4X4 vehicles, and even dug out canoes to reach the few remaining areas where transmission of the disease is still active.

To date MSF’s mobile sleeping sickness team has worked in Central African Republic; Chad, and Republic of Congo, and are soon to work in South Sudan. MSF also runs ongoing sleeping sickness programmes in South Sudan, Central African Republic, and Democratic Republic of Congo.
