Incidence of Invasive Salmonella Disease in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Multicentre Population-Based Surveillance Study

This article, published in The Lancet Global Health, reports the results of a study that aimed to measure incidence estimates of typhoid fever and invasive non-typhoidal salmonella (iNTS) disease in sub-Saharan Africa. Using data from 13 African sites, the study found that typhoid and iNTS disease are major causes of invasive bacterial febrile illness, most commonly affecting children in both low and high population density settings. The authors note that the introduction of typhoid conjugate vaccines and the development of iNTS vaccines should be considered for high-incidence settings.
