It is not effective against T. brucei rhodesiense, which causes Rhodesian (or East African) sleeping sickness. African trypanosomiasis has been labelled as a ‘tool-deficient’ disease. This article reflects on the role that Product Development Partnerships (PDPs) have played in delivering new tools and innovations for the control and elimination of the African trypanosomiases. We analysed three product development partnerships—DNDi, FIND and GALVmed—that focus on delivering new drugs Author: Emma Michelle Taylor, James Smith.

A diagnosis of African trypanosomiasis is confirmed by the presence of T. brucei gambiense or T. brucei rhodesiense. Repeated examinations may be necessary to demonstrate the presence of the organisms and, even using concentration techniques, false negatives may still occur.
