Being a critical cause for an ailment and passing in creating nations where safe water supply, natural sanitation and sustenance cleanliness is not ideal. Typhoid remains a communicable disease found both male and female. It occurs due to the systematic infection of mainly via Salmonella typhi. An epidemiological model aimed at immediate and round about transmission of typhoid is planned and examined. The fundamental number is figured out. This cross-sectional study was carried out to determine the prevalence of typhoid fever in 4253 consecutive patients with fever and symptoms clinically compatible with typhoid fever to verify recent estimates of a high prevalence of typhoid fever in individuals living in the Charsadda. 923 patients show the positive result, 476 were males & 487 females in the total of 4253. The ratio of positive result is considerable higher in females as compare to men.
