CHRF's Work on Typhoid & Paratyphoid - Genomics Chapter
11 September, 2023
Typhoid and paratyphoid fever cause 14.3 million illnesses and 135,000 deaths each year globally. It remains a major public health problem in low-and-middle-income countries (LMICs), particularly in Asian and sub-Saharan African regions.
At CHRF, we have been conducting typhoid and paratyphoid surveillance since the 1990s.
