African Trypanosomiasis: Crossing Borders

141 individual importations (193 patients) of African trypanosomiasis are listed by Gideon www.GideonOnline.com  Ten of these patients acquired the disease in Zambia, and 27 were treated in South Africa.

As of February, 2019 the Gideon web application and e-book series [1,2] list 2,718 individual cross-border events, arranged in 134 charts – by disease and country.  Charts also include importation of infected animals (ie, rabid dogs) and contaminated foods and other vehicles which resulted in outbreaks.  Charts in the web application are interactive, and allow the user to sort data according to country, year, number of cases, etc.  In the following screen shots, I have sorted the African trypanosomiasis chart to display cases originating in Zambia (upper box) and cases imported into South Africa (lower box)
