About this Publication:

This is one of five country specific sub-Saharan African studies (conducted in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Ethiopia and Uganda and Zambia) aimed at generating baseline information that could inform the integration of novel treatments, diagnostics and vaccines should they become available. A previous systematic review of recent and on-going Trypanosome & Tsetse control programs has been the basis for the geographic focus of the five studies. This report summarizes the results of the study which was carried out in Burkina Faso. AAT is an important constraint to livestock production in endemic areas (Southwest and West). Trypanocide resistance has also been cited as a major concern to these farmers. The study results will inform the refinement of existing decision support tools to aid evidence-based decisions on the use of novel drugs, diagnostics and vaccines as part of integrated Trypanosome & Tsetse control programs.
