New Typhoid Supplement Now Online

Posted 27 July 2018

Supplement on the Global Burden and Epidemiology of Typhoid Fever Available Online

The Journal has published a 13-paper supplement on global trends in typhoid fever, available now on the Journal website.
The Tackling Typhoid (T2) project, led by Zulfiqar Bhutta, PhD, MBBS, FRCPCH, FAAP (who presented the 2016 Annual Meeting Commemorative Fund Lecture “Global Child Survival: Transition from the Millennium Development to Sustainable Development Goals”), and funded through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was initiated in 2015 to synthesize the existing body of literature on typhoidal salmonellae and study national and regional typhoid fever trends. In addition to a global systematic review, eight case studies were undertaken to examine typhoid and paratyphoid fever trends in endemic countries alongside changes in relevant contextual factors. The print version of this supplement will be available in September.
“This collection of papers offers important updates on typhoid from multiple regions around the world,” said Journal Editor-in-Chief Philip Rosenthal, MD, FASTMH. “The papers demonstrate remarkable progress in decreasing the burden of typhoid in most areas, but also continued challenges to maintaining and extending the gains that have been achieved.”
