ROTA Council White Paper

Rotavirus: Common, Severe, Devastating, Preventable

The ROTA Council white paper, Rotavirus: Common, Severe, Devastating, Preventable (2016), is a 50-page report featuring evidence and programmatic information about:

  • Rotavirus disease, and why every child is vulnerable
  • Vaccines in global use, nationally available vaccines, and new vaccines on the horizon
  • WHO recommendations and key guidance on vaccine administration
  • Public health impact in high-income countries, middle-income countries, and low-income countries
  • Cost-effectiveness of rotavirus vaccines
  • Emerging data and areas for further research
  • Recommendations for stakeholders to scale up coverage of rotavirus vaccines to all children

The ROTA Council was created in collaboration with an advisory group of 24 child health leaders from around the world. We promote the use of rotavirus vaccines as part of a comprehensive approach to addressing diarrheal disease.
