About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about West African Trypanosomiasis. The term 'prevalence' of West African Trypanosomiasis usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing West African Trypanosomiasis at any given time. The term 'incidence' of West African Trypanosomiasis refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of West 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. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
