Study identifies spatial distribution of trypanosomes in cattle from western Kenya
African animal trypanosomiasis is a tsetse-transmitted protozoan disease endemic in the tsetse belt of Africa. Past studies investigating the epidemiology of the disease rarely focused on spatial distribution when reporting the prevalence.
This study aimed to identify trypanosome species in cattle and their spatial distribution in western Kenya. The study showed the importance of geospatial data analysis in understanding the epidemiology of the parasite. The study findings will inform future research and help develop effective strategies to control the disease.
