On Wednesday during the Human African trypanosomiasis session, two oral presentations were given about the project.  The first presentation (2.09), given by V. Lejon presented the DiTECT-HAT project activities as a whole.  Next, P. Büscher presented (2.10) digital recording of participant data in DiTECT-HAT, including pictures and videos.

The importance of projects like DiTECT-HAT was again underlined in the ISCTRC final recommendations, stating that new diagnostic tools and algorithms should be independently evaluated.
