Lunchtime Workshops

Due to high demand, we have increased capacity for the lunchtime workshops. If you are unable to register for a workshop and would like to join a waitlist in case a spot opens up, please email with your session preference.

New at the 11th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses, participants will be able to sign up for small, interactive lunchtime workshops of their choosing. Space is limited and participants must pre-register to attend lunchtime sessions when they register to attend the conference. The following workshops will be offered:

Salmonella 101

This session is designed to provide a crash course on key and challenging issues in invasive Salmonella disease. While all are welcome, the session is designed especially for those who are relatively new to the field or who are early in their careers. Speakers include seasoned experts on specific topics that we hope will jump-start your experience at the 11th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses.

Vaccine introduction decision making **Duplicate session added on Day 3!**

TyVAC will host this lunchtime session about typhoid conjugate vaccine introduction decision-making. The session will target national and sub-national decision-makers who have to weigh various factors with regard to introduction decisions and strategy, including vaccine program cost estimates and cost effectiveness, among others.

Talking about typhoid: a crash course in advocacy

This session, hosted by Take on Typhoid, is open to anyone interested in advocating for typhoid prioritization and typhoid conjugate vaccine introduction in their country. The conversation will focus on advocacy strategies, messages, and how to package the evidence to best inform and influence decision-making. Civil society partners, scientists, researchers, and decision-makers are all welcome.

Implementing the WHO Typhoid Surveillance Standards

The WHO, Sabin, and IVI are hosting an interactive workshop to highlight the new WHO typhoid surveillance standards. Participants will hear from SEAP and SETA study practitioners about how the standards have worked in different contexts and discuss creative solutions to implement the standards. The target audience is those at the health unit who are responsible for implementing the surveillance standards on a day-to-day basis.


Is iNTS a Neglected Tropical Disease? The Malawi-Liverpool Wellcome Trust will convene a discussion of the four criteria for iNTS to be defined as a Neglected Tropical Disease, as a means of strategically advancing advocacy and awareness,and of mobilising funding. Those with a strategic interest in advancing iNTS research and vaccination, those wishing to contribute data to an application for iNTS to be recognised as an NTD, and those with experience of NTDs are all welcome.
