Sleeping sickness or Human African Trypanosomiasis (HAT) is endemic in 36 African countries and around 13 million people are at medium to high risk of being infected. HAT is transmitted by the tsetse fly and is usually fatal without treatment.

MSF responds by screening villages for HAT cases in the health zone Kibombo in the Maniéma province, in DR Congo.

Residential areas are composed of more than two houses and are tagged with landuse=residential. Click here for a guide on mapping residential areas

Major roads:

  • highway=primary, highway=secondary or highway=tertiary for main roads connecting towns
  • highway=unclassified connecting smaller villages and hamlets

Click here for a guide on mapping road networks.

Other road tags:

Smaller offshoot roads could be left off unless they link different areas of habitation.

  • highway=residential inside residential boundaries
  • highway=track only goes to farmland
  • highway=path, narrow footpaths, not even a 4x4 can get down this
