Rotavirus among Children Worldwide

A hospital-based surveillance reports indicate that during 2001-2008, rotavirus accounted for approximately 40% of hospitalizations for diarrhea among children aged <5>85% of these deaths occurring in low-income countries of Africa and Asia. Two licensed rotavirus vaccines have shown efficacy of 85%-98% against severe rotavirus diarrhea in trials conducted in the Americas and Europe and they have been introduced into routine immunization programs in 11 countries in these regions and in Australia. Although the two licensed rotavirus vaccines differ in strain composition (i.e., one is monovalent, and one is pentavalent), both appear to provide protection against a variety of strains, including some strains not included in either of the licensed vaccines.
