Experts convene to address major cause of childhood illness and death
Date:9/21/2012

42 percent of all hospital admissions for diarrhea in Asia.

"For many years, the top priority has been to develop a vaccine to address the burden caused by rotavirus," noted Roger Glass, Director, Fogarty International Center of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). "Now there is a vaccine, so we must turn our attention to implementation, monitoring and evaluation."

While the World Health Organization recommends that rotavirus vaccines be included in every country's national immunization program, only 38 countries have taken this step, including just two in Asia. The Philippines began vaccinating children for rotavirus in July 2012, and Thailand recently introduced rotavirus vaccination in the Sukhothai Province.

The 10th International Rotavirus Symposium, led by the Sabin Vaccine Institute, PATH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is being held from September 19-21, 2012 in order to review the latest data on rotavirus vaccine impact, efficacy and safety, as well as rotavirus vaccine policy and introduction issues.

"The evidence being shared at this year's symposium is essential to informing and influencing policy related to rotavirus vaccine introduction and use," said Kathleen Neuzil, Director, Vaccine Access and Delivery at PATH. "Every child is vulnerable to the rotavirus threat, regardless of where they live. We can change this."
