The Burden of Typhoid Fever in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: A Meta-Regression Approach

This article, published in PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, provides an updated model-based estimate of the global burden of typhoid in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Model-based estimates were used to offer insights for decision-makers in the absence of readily available data. The authors estimated that 17.8 million cases of typhoid fever occur each year in LMICs, with Central Africa predicted to experience the highest incidence of typhoid followed by select countries in Central, South, and Southeast Asia. Incidence typically peaked in the 2 to 4 year old age group.
