Our objectives were to assess the prevalence and geographic distribution of AMR in Salmonella enterica serovars Typhi and Paratyphi A infections globally, to evaluate the extent of the problem, and to facilitate the creation of geospatial maps of AMR prevalence to help targeted public health intervention.

Antimicrobial drug resistance in Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi isolates worldwide, 1990 to 2017: A systematic review of the literature
Salmonella Typhi and Paratyphi are WHO priority pathogens that cause serious bloodstream infections. Antimicrobial resistance presents a significant public health burden as it negatively impacts our ability to treat and control enteric fever. The aim of this project is to map the spatial distribution of drug resistant S. Typhi and Paratyphi and to incorporate the impact of AMR into the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study estimates.

Despite the long-standing recognition of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) across many settings, there is surprisingly poor information about its geographical distribution over time and trends in its population prevalence and incidence. This makes reliable assessments of the health burden attributable to AMR difficult, weakening the evidence base to drive forward research and policy agendas to combat AMR. The inclusion of mortality and morbidity data related to drug-resistant infections into the annual Global Burden of Disease Study should help fill this policy void.
