African Trypanosomiasis, or better known as African Sleeping Sickness, is a parasite driven infection of the human nervous system. The disease is caused by the microbial parasites of the species ''Trypanosoma brucei'' and than transmitted through the tsetse fly, found only in rural parts of Africa. Throughout history, this disease has been classified as a public health problem seen primarily in sub-saharan areas of Africa. About 10,000 cases of the disease are reported every year to the World Health organization, but unfortunately it is expected that most cases go unreported and/or undiagnosed.
