Introduction: Typhoid fever is a systemic bacterial illness of public health importance. The disease is transmitted person to person due to fecal contamination of food and water. Objectives: The main objective of the study is to analyse the estimation of typhoid fever in risk associated with lack of access to clean water. Material and methods: This cross sectional study was conducted in Services Hospital, Lahore during March 2019 to November 2019. The data was collected for the analysis of risk of fever in association with the risk of clean water. Results: The data was collected from 300 participants. Table 01 shows some resources of water in selected area of participants. Among participants who reported drinking water from a source other than their main household water source, cases were more likely to have drunk water from a surface water source than controls. Conclusion: It is concluded that exposure to unimproved water or unsafe water is significantly associated with typhoid fever.
