The International Scientific Council for Trypanosomiasis Research and Control (ISCTRC) is an official council of the African Union Commission, and its Secretariat is located at the African Union InterAfrican Bureau for Animal resources (AU-IBAR) in Nairobi, Kenya. It was established in the early 60s as a vehicle to promote international cooperation in the fight against trypanosomiasis which is one of Africa’s greatest constraints to socio-economic development, severely affecting human and livestock health, limiting land use, causing poverty and perpetuating underdevelopment on the continent. The Council has been organising General Scientific Conferences since 1949 to promote information sharing and exchange on matters related to tsetse and trypanosomiasis research and control, as a means to achieve its objectives.
