Typhoid fever, an infection spread through contaminated food and water, kills more than 200,000 people every year, most of whom are children. A vaccine-preventable disease, typhoid impacts vulnerable populations in low-income countries that lack access to clean water and sanitation. Typhoid vaccination is a safe, effective, and affordable way to fight the disease.

Our Conferences

The Coalition against Typhoid hosted the 10th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses on April 4 – 6, 2017, in Kampala, Uganda. The theme of the conference was “From Evidence to Action,” as the conference aimed to invigorate the response to typhoid, paratyphoid and invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella (iNTS) disease by:

  • Bringing together the world’s experts to advance knowledge, present new research and promote scientific collaborations around the world
  • Setting the stage for the new typhoid conjugate vaccines (TCVs)
  • Advancing a clear agenda for preventing typhoid, paratyphoid and iNTS including the cross-cutting issues of water, sanitation, and hygiene, urbanization, environment and equity
  • Building partnerships between science, government and businesses to strengthen typhoid, paratyphoid and iNTS prevention and control efforts.

The conference program, presentations, videos and participant list are available online. We look forward to seeing you all at the next conference!

About Us

The Coalition against Typhoid (CaT) is a global forum connecting researchers, advocates and policymakers to raise awareness of Typhoid (typhoid and paratyphoid) and non-typhoidal Salmonellosis (invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella) as a global health priority. CaT acts as a catalyst in the global health and development community to coordinate partnerships, convene decision-makers, and advocate for sustainable solutions in the fight against typhoid and non-typhoidal Salmonellosis (NTS) including access to clean water and vaccines for vulnerable populations. CaT, formed in 2010, is led by a Secretariat housed at the Sabin Vaccine Institute and guided by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee. CaT is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. You can contact CaT at cat@sabin.org or at (202) 842-8680.
