Rotavirus Disease Burden in Africa

Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among children under 5 years of age worldwide and is responsible for significant mortality and morbidity. Africa has one of the greatest burdens of rotavirus disease globally with over half of all rotavirus deaths occurring in African children. Two live, oral, attenuated rotavirus vaccines are licensed and available for use. These vaccines are starting to be introduced in countries throughout Africa and are poised to have a substantial impact across the continent. This supplement highlights data on rotavirus disease burden in Africa prior to rotavirus vaccine introduction. As the vaccines are rolled out across Africa, these studies, coupled with ongoing sentinel surveillance, will provide important data against which the impact of rotavirus vaccine can be measure.
