Indonesian Technical Advisory Group on Immunizations Conference Summary

Coalition against Typhoid Director Imran Khan and Senior Technical Officer Stacy Davlin both presented at the The Indonesian Technical Advisory Group on Immunizations Conference on April 27, 2015 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The ITAGI hosted the conference on the global burden of typhoid and the agenda to develop a typhoid conjugate vaccine.

Every year, typhoid fever results in thousands of deaths worldwide. Though typhoid is treatable with antibiotics, resistance to commonly used antibiotics is a widespread problem. In addition, a lack of effective diagnostic tests results in delayed or inaccurate treatment. Together, these problems underscore the need for widespread typhoid vaccine use. However, access to typhoid vaccines remains low in many high burden areas including Indonesia.
