About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about East African Trypanosomiasis. The term 'prevalence' of East African Trypanosomiasis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing East African Trypanosomiasis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of East African Trypanosomiasis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of East African Trypanosomiasis diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
