The Coalition against Typhoid is excited to announce Stories of Typhoid, a series of profiles sharing the impact of typhoid on families in endemic countries. In the inaugural profile, we meet Rasmina, a 5 year old from Banepa, Nepal who contracted typhoid earlier this year.
Stories of Typhoid will publish a new profile every month with stories from typhoid-affected families in Asia and Africa. Through these profiles, we will go beyond the statistics to get to know the real people impacted by typhoid.
We hope you enjoy reading Stories of Typhoid, and share it with your colleagues and friends.
