From April 30 to May 3, the Coalition against Typhoid (CaT) Secretariat, with coordination and support from PT Bio Farma, convened nearly 250 participants from 36 countries for the 9th International Conference on Typhoid and Invasive Non-Typhoidal Salmonella (iNTS) Disease.

New data from the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Foodborne Disease Burden Epidemiology Reference Group reveal that in 2010, unsafe food was responsible for 22 different foodborne enteric diseases– including typhoid fever.

This week, the Coalition against Typhoid (CaT) announced the launch of its new, redesigned website, coalitionagainsttyphoid.org.  

A recent publication in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, “Predicting the Impact of Vaccination on the Transmission Dynamics of Typhoid in South Asia: A Mathematical Modeling Study,” by Pitzer et al. highlights the benefits of typhoid vaccination programs in infants and school-aged children.
