The devastating effects of rotavirus infection continue to be felt more heavily in African countries than most other places. Global burden studies
estimate that just eight countries in sub-Saharan Africa alone account for 80% of global rotavirus mortality.
This week, rotavirus researchers, policymakers, and public health practitioners will once again be gathering for the 13th Annual African Rotavirus Symposium
to discuss the persisting burden of rotavirus in Africa, the successful strides being made with rotavirus vaccine introduction, and the continued challenges to disease prevention and control in Africa.
Ahead of this convening, we curated this newsletter to highlight some of our resources that help share the experiences and lessons learned in African countries that have introduced rotavirus vaccine.
