Introduce Vaccines to Reduce Typhoid Disease Burden in Malawi
21 July 2016

Malawi has a significant public health problem of typhoid fever and multi-drug resistant Salmonella typhi that causes typhoid fever. The country has no clear strategy on how to contain outbreaks of typhoid and to respond to the problem of multi-drug resistant typhoid fever. There is need for vaccine-based prevention interventions as additional measures to complement non-vaccine public health interventions. The government should consider the adoption of the available safe and efficacious typhoid fever vaccines.
