Revisiting Typhoid Fever Surveillance in Low and Middle Income Countries: Lessons From Systematic Literature Review of Population-Based Longitudinal Studies

This article, published in BMC Infectious Diseases, reports the results of a systematic literature review of longitudinal population-based blood culture-confirmed typhoid fever studies from low- and middle-income countries. The reported incidence and hospitalization rates were heterogeneous as well as the study methodology across the 20 distinct sites. The authors explain how the incidence rates were underestimated in published studies and summarize six categories of under-estimation biases observed in these studies with potential solutions.
