Abstract
The Organization exists to carry out research on trypanosomiasis in order that methods may be devised to combat the tsetse-borne diseases of man and cattle 'which so 'greatly hinder the development of the East African territories. During the period reviewed proposals have been made for the reorganization of E.A.T.T.R.R.O. which, it is hoped, will be largely implemented by the end of the next financial year The proposals involve (i) the transfer of the Headquarters of the Organization from Nairobi to the Central Trypanosomiasis Research Laboratory at Tororo, Uganda; (ii) the change in title of the Organization to the East African Trypanosomiasis Research Organization; (iii) the formation of an advisory committee composed of heads of territorial departments concerned with trypanosomiasis under the chairmanship of the Chief Administrative Secretary of the E.A. High Commission.
