The overall aim of the project is to evaluate accuracy and feasibility of new, ready to implement diagnostic tools, and to propose algorithms for Tbg HAT diagnosis in 3 situations: (1) Passive case detection in peripheral health centres; (2) Post-elimination monitoring for detection of disease re-emergence and (3) Early test-of-cure in therapeutic trials.

The project is structured in 7 work packages (WPs) that reflect the overall aim of the project and that are represented in the figure below.

On the one hand, WP2, WP3, WP4 and WP5 constitute the core of our project dealing with collection and analysis of specimens under the 3 above mentioned situations and subsequently developing and evaluating appropriate diagnostic algorithms for each situation. On the other hand, WP1, WP6 and WP7 are cross-sectional and provide managerial, scientific and technical support to the ‘core’ WPs.
