Prevention of Enteric Fever is a challenge for everybody. Social awareness is the key to preventing enteric fever.
Typhoid Fever and Paratyphoid fever
Typhoid and paratyphoid fever is a major cause of illness in most developing countries, including Bangladesh. It remains the most common bloodstream infection in many resource-poor settings. It requires the ingestion of at least 105 Salmonella bacteria at a time to produce typhoid. Recently estimated 22 million new typhoid cases occur each year in the world, with some 0.2 million of these resulting in death. Paratyphoid fever is similar in its symptoms to typhoid fever, but typhoid fever has a higher fatality rate. Bangladesh is located in a region where typhoid is highly endemic. Prevention of enteric fever is a gradual process and only social awareness can mitigate the disease.
