News & Events

Throughout the year, the ROTA Council organizes and participates in technical symposia and workshops to update researchers, clinicians, policy makers, and others on key technical topics around rotavirus.


The Council also holds advocacy symposia and workshops to train pediatricians, researchers, and others on effective advocacy strategies for rotavirus vaccines. We consider media engagement – via commentaries, opinion editorials, and interviews – an important avenue to communicate the need to introduce rotavirus vaccines.
