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.
