Abstract

The need for a comprehensive bi-modal approach toward mitigation of trypanosomiasis in Africa, in both human and animal populations, is addressed. Focus is on the basic research underway at the Seattle Biomedical Research Institute on Trypanosoma brucei. Existing monitoring programs utilizing remote sensing to assist in controlling the arthropod vector are outlined. Furthermore, the case for a coordinated in vitro and remote-sensing-assisted in situ bi-modal mitigation strategy is highlighted.
