Human African trypanosomiasis, or sleeping sickness, is a neglected vector-borne parasitic disease caused by protozoa of the species Trypanosoma brucei sensu lato. Within this complex species, T. b. gambiense is responsible for the chronic form of sleeping sickness in Western and Central Africa, whereas T. b. rhodesiense causes the acute form of the disease in East Africa.
