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.

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.
