The neglected disease is killing children of age between 5 and 15 year-old in Northern Uganda. It has no cure. This mysterious 'Nodding Disease' which was discovered in 2003 by WHO, its cure hasn't been found. Uganda government committed Shs100million ($40,899 or £26,113), which can't take care of 3000 children officially known be suffering from the disease.
