About the Conference:

The Coalition against Typhoid was pleased to host the 10th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses from 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
