In South Asia, where the burden of enteric fever is thought to be highest, most typhoid studies have focused on urban areas. As a result, researchers have been unsure how well available data could be extrapolated to predominantly rural areas.

New typhoid conjugate vaccines offer important advantages over prior vaccines, including the ability to protect young children, longer lasting protection, and the potential to be a part of routine immunization of infants.

Families across the United States are sending their young children back to school. School preparations are not limited to buying school supplies. Parents should make sure their children are up-to-date with vaccinations.

We launched the award-winning END7 campaign in 2012 to build a grassroots movement to end the seven most common neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). With your support, we mobilized funding to support programs that treated more than 50 million people, helped increase US and UK funding for NTDs and spread awareness of the global NTD burden. Now, five years later, we are concluding the END7 campaign. We are grateful for the support of all of our followers, student groups and generous donors who made the campaign such a success.

Investigators from the Aga Khan University (AKU) are actively investigating a large outbreak of typhoid fever bacteria that are resistant to ceftriaxone, an antibiotic commonly used by physicians to treat this infection.
