by Martial Kassi N’Djetchi, Hamidou Ilboudo, Mathurin Koffi, Jacques Kaboré, Justin Windingoudi Kaboré, Dramane Kaba, Fabrice Courtin, Bamoro Coulibaly, Pierre Fauret, Lingué Kouakou, Sophie Ravel, Stijn Deborggraeve, Philippe Solano, Thierry De Meeûs, Bruno Bucheton, Vincent Jamonneau Background Important control efforts have led to a significant reduction of the prevalence of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) in Côte d’Ivoire, but the disease is still present in several foci.
