Table 3 Years of Life Lived with Disability (YLD) due to rhodesiense sleeping sickness in Serere, Uganda. Disability weights of 0.21 and 0.81 were used for early and late stage cases, respectively. Values are mean values (with 95% confidence intervals) from 10,000 Monte-Carlo simulations, derived from data from 1999–2005.
