Title: “National Surveillance System for Enteric Fever in India- Tier 1 Active Surveillance”is ongoing at KEMHRC, Vadu.

Funded by: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

Objective:The objective of the study is to estimate the burden of culture confirmed typhoid and paratyphoid fever in the community; describe the incidence of acute febrile illness and its associated treatment practices in the community and to explore the risk factors for typhoid transmission in the community to permit the risk characterisation of the settings where the incidence estimates arise from. The relevance of this community-based surveillance (Tier 1) component of the National Surveillance System for Enteric Fever in India is estimating the burden of disease in this population so as to identify the population likely to be addressed in typhoid conjugate vaccines in national immunization programs. The expected Outcome of this study is the Disease burden in those between 6 months and 15 years of age.
