Service Description

The majority of typhoid cases occur in Asia, but it continues to be a public health concern in many other low income countries in Africa and Central and South America. The Indian subcontinent is a particularly high incidence area, with as many as 1 in 10 travelers contracting Typhoid in this region. Symptoms include fever, chills, headache, malaise, anorexia and nausea. Enlargement of the liver and/or spleen occurs in about 50 percent of cases. Complications occur in 10-15 percent of all infections, including intestinal haemorrhage and perforation, inflammation of the heart, pneumonia, seizures, encephalopathy, and meningitis (usually in young children). If untreated, as high as 20 percent of those infected die. One dose provides protection for 3 years against Typhoid
