By increasing disease burden knowledge and awareness and raising visibility of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendations to countries and clarifying vaccination strategies, the Coalition against Typhoid (CaT) aims to prioritize typhoid on the global stage.
CaT is a global forum of scientists and immunization experts working to save lives and reduce suffering by advancing typhoid vaccination in high burden communities; populations affected by complex emergencies and natural disasters; and persons at risk for typhoid or its transmission as a result of their occupation or travel.
Activities of the CaT include:
The Coalition against Typhoid attends and organizes multiple annual events and meetings to foster collaboration of CaT activities at regional, national and global levels. These events include the World Congress on Pediatric Infectious Diseases, the International Congress for Infectious Disease, the General Meeting of the Developing Countries Vaccine Manufactures Network and series of meetings with the best modelling experts in the world to review typhoid burden estimates and vaccine impact models.
CaT continues to expand the number of its partners and assist in the coordination of in-country implementation programs and monitoring of typhoid vaccination programs.
