A global multi-institutional Typhoid fever genomic surveillance network to improve global public health outcomes

Project description

Genomic surveillance of typhoid fever

Every year, there are millions of typhoid fever cases in the world. With antimicrobial therapy being the only treatment option, emerging drug resistance must be contained and prevented from spreading to other neighbouring countries. For this purpose, the EU-funded TyphiNET project will employ a genomics epidemiology approach to assist sentinel and endemic areas surveillance for Salmonella typhi. The scope is to obtain information on specific strain prevalence, antimicrobial resistance and regional transmission patterns. TyphiNET will share this data through an open-access publicly available platform, improving disease management and guiding antimicrobial choice.
