The Severe Typhoid Fever in Africa (SETA) Program

This supplmental issue of Clinical Infectious Diseases contains 12 articles that report on the methodology and results from the ongoing Severe Typhoid Fever in Africa (SETA) Program, providing additional data on the clinical and economic burden of severe typhoid disease in six African countries. Collectively, these articles demonstrate how systematic surveillance studies like the SETA program have refined the understanding and impact of age and geographic distribution of typhoid fever and other invasive salmonelloses in Africa, which will help inform future typhoid control strategies, particularly the introduction of typhoid conjugate vaccines.
