Abstract
The illness has caused most devastating and lethal epidemics at the beginning of the colonial era in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Between 1885 and 1920, parasites have decimated the population of several infected areas. The second major outbreak started in 1920 and reached its peak in the 1930s and 1940s. At this time, a very impressive means for a policy based on active research, patient care and sanitation of the community living environment. According to the national fight against (sleeping sickness), African human trypanosomiasis, in the eve of independence, the rate of African human trypanosomiasis had a very low level (0.01%). After independence, due to the relaxation of the shares, the destruction of health facilities and the care of the sick, it was observed that the disease has gradually increased in almost all old houses. After independence, due to relaxation of the actions, the destruction of health facilities, as well as the care of the sick, it was observed that the disease gradually increased in almost the all old houses. Currently, trypanosomiasis remains a major health problem in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The government, assisted by United Nations Agencies and International NGOs, has, since 1968, a specialized service to combat the disease. This is the national program for the fight against African human trypanosomiasis that rules the national policy in this area.
