Table 4 Disability-Adjusted Life Years due to rhodesiense sleeping sickness in Serere, Uganda. Values are mean values (with 95% confidence intervals) from 10,000 Monte-Carlo simulations, derived from data from 1999–2005. The DALY score for each age group = YLL + YLD for that age group.

From: Estimating the burden of rhodesiense sleeping sickness during an outbreak in Serere, eastern Uganda
