Report of a Joint WHO Expert Committee and FAO Expert Consultation, Rome, 8-12 November 1976 This volume is the report of a joint WHO expert commitee and FAO expert consultation on the African trypanosomiases who met in Rome from 8 to 12 November 1976. It presents their conclusions and indicates the important advances made since 1968 joint FAO/WHO meeting  . International collaborations and varying technical expertise necessitate a modular open-source software solution. Finally, we address three recurring problems with data management: scalability, reliability, and security. Implications of mortality and morbidity for health care delivery in Ghana.

The trypanosomiases consist of a group of important animal and human diseases caused by parasitic protozoa of the genus Trypanosoma. In sub-Saharan Africa, the final decade of the 20th century witnessed an alarming resurgence in sleeping sickness (human African trypanosomiasis). In South and Central America, Chagas’ disease (American trypanosomiasis) remains one of the most prevalent infectious diseases. Arthropod vectors transmit African and American trypanosomiases, and disease containment through insect control programmes is an achievable goal

It is a preprint of the WHO Manual for staff involved in the control of African human trypanosomiases. It will be issued in French and English in 1985 as part of WHO's programme "The Primary Health Care Approach Towards the Control and Prevention of Sleeping Sickness". The purpose of the programme is to help national services in achieving better surveillance coverage of the population at risk. The manual is composed of several sections, written for primary health care workers, nurses, medical assistants and medical doctors.

African, American and Asian trypanosomiases are covered. The book is organized into seven parts: Part 1. Biology of trypanosomes; Part 2. Vector biology; Part 3. Epidemiology and diagnosis; Part 4. Pathogenesis; Part 5. Disease impact; Part 6. Chemotherapy and disease control; and Part 7. Vector control. The nature of the international effort against the trypanosomiases is touched upon in the Preface, but more information here would have been helpful. He joined the Government’s Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Control organization in 1951, and was based in Hurungwe and Sebungwe Districts.

Trypanosomiases are imported and rare parasitosis on the French metropolitan territory. They are re-emerging in some endemic areas, and their mode of transmission can lead to an increase of imported cases in a near future. They can be responsible for serious disease. In this paper, we describe the basic data concerning epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of sleeping sickness (Africa) and Chagas disease (Latin America).
