    Stemming the tide of drug-resistant typhoid in Zimbabwe

    November 12-18 is World Antibiotic Awareness Week—a time to raise awareness about the growing threat of drug resistance and our collective responsibility to safeguard the effectiveness of antibiotics through appropriate use. Drug-resistant typhoid is an urgent and growing issue that can be slowed with vaccines, which help prevent illness and the need for antibiotics in the first place. As a principle partner of the Typhoid Vaccine Acceleration Consortium, PATH is helping countries introduce typhoid conjugate vaccines (TCVs) to control outbreaks of typhoid and stem the growth of drug resistance.

    Here’s one story from Zimbabwe.
