Nontyphoidal Salmonella invasive disease in Africa: Current knowledge and data gaps

Seminar presented Professor John Crump.

Abstract

Nontyphoidal Salmonella are major causes of community-onset bloodstream infection in Africa. Infants and young children, adolescents and adults with HIV, and persons with recent malaria or malnutrition are at increased risk.

This seminar will provide an update on our understanding of invasive nontyphoidal Salmonella disease burden; examine evidence and knowledge gaps on reservoir, source, and mode of transmission relevant to non-vaccine prevention; and progress with vaccine development for the disease.
