Chad becomes the first country in the world to have medicine that cures sleeping sickness known as human African trypanosomiasis. This accomplishment marks the first time a neglected tropical disease has been eradicated in the country.

The success is attributed to sustained efforts by the government, international health organizations, and local communities. Comprehensive strategies, including widespread screening, treatment, and vector control measures, have been instrumental.

This landmark achievement not only improves public health but also sets a precedent for combating other neglected tropical diseases across Africa. Kudos to Chad!
