Background WHO recommends routine use of rotavirus vaccines in all countries, particularly in those with high mortality attributable to diarrhoeal diseases. To establish the burden of life-threatening rotavirus disease before the introduction of a rotavirus vaccine, we aimed to update the estimated number of deaths worldwide in children younger than 5 years due to diarrhoea attributable to rotavirus infection. 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Severe Winter Diarrhea associated with Rotavirus disease in children
TLDR
In Asia, rotaviruses take the lives of 188,000 children, accounting for more than 40% of global rotavirus deaths2, and in the developing countries including Nepal, the number of deaths is higher than ever. Expand
Global and Swedish review of rotavirus vaccines showed considerable reductions in morbidity and mortality
TLDR
This review summarises the baseline facts and evidence, the most common vaccines and the global direct and indirect effects, with a special focus on Sweden. Expand
The promise of immunisation against rotavirus
TLDR
The experience of primary prevention of rotavirus disease through immunisation is reviewed and the case for extending vaccine use further in Europe and globally is considered. Expand
Remaining issues and challenges for rotavirus vaccine in preventing global childhood diarrheal morbidity and mortality
TLDR
The objectives of this paper are to describe the remaining issues and challenges in ensuring the success of the global rotavirus vaccination program and to discuss further research needed to help address them. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of rotavirus in the era of vaccination
TLDR
Minor fluctuations in rotavirus epidemiology have been observed since vaccine introduction, however, it is unclear whether these observations are due to selection pressures specific to vaccine introduction or due to natural genotype fluctuations. Expand
Preparing for the Scale-up of Rotavirus Vaccine Introduction in Africa: Establishing Surveillance Platforms to Monitor Disease Burden and Vaccine Impact
TLDR
The ongoing surveillance provided data that will serve as a baseline against which the impact of rotavirus vaccines in Africa can be assessed, and 2 countries sought to systematically investigate cases of intussusception, a rare adverse event that has been associated with rotav virus vaccines in some settings. Expand
Rotavirus disease and health care utilisation among children under 5 years of age in highly developed countries: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
The health care use estimates for RVGE obtained by this study can be used to model RV vaccine cost-effectiveness in highly developed countries. Expand
Monitoring of rotavirus vaccination in Morocco: establishing the baseline burden of rotavirus disease.
TLDR
It is estimated that 1 in 389 Moroccan children died and 1 in 32 was hospitalized due to rotavirus before their fifth birthday, meaning that 4 years of stable prevaccine surveillance in Morocco will be a tremendously useful platform for assessing potential changes in the epidemiology of rotvirus disease and measuring impact of the new rotav virus vaccine program in Morocco. Expand
Burden of rotavirus gastroenteritis and distribution of rotavirus strains in Asia: a systematic review.
TLDR
Rotavirus is associated with substantial hospitalizations and deaths among children and causes large healthcare expenditures throughout Asia, and safe and effective rotavirus vaccines could substantially reduce the burden of disease. Expand
Prevalence of rotavirus infection among children with acute diarrhoea after rotavirus vaccine introduction in Kenya, a hospital cross-sectional study
TLDR
Overall, a half of the children had severe acute diarrhoea and there were some differences in severity by child/mother characteristics, although the prevalence somewhat differed by gender, nutritional status, exclusive breastfeeding status, age and education level of mother/caregiver. Expand

Global mortality associated with rotavirus disease among children in 2004.
TLDR
The high mortality associated with rotavirus disease underscores the need for targeted interventions, such as vaccines, to realize the full life-saving potential of vaccines. Expand
Rotavirus and Severe Childhood Diarrhea
TLDR
Application of this proportion to the recent World Health Organization estimates of diarrhea-related childhood deaths gave an estimated 611,000 rotavirus-related deaths. Expand
Reduction of Diarrhea-associated Hospitalizations Among Children Aged <5 Years in Panama Following the Introduction of Rotavirus Vaccine
TLDR
RV1 appears to have had a substantial impact on diarrhea-associated hospitalizations among young children in Panama, with reductions similar among infants and those aged 1–4 years of age, even though only 25% of the latter group was likely to have received vaccine by early 2008. Expand
Reduction in Rotavirus-associated Acute Gastroenteritis Following Introduction of Rotavirus Vaccine Into Australia's National Childhood Vaccine Schedule
TLDR
Early evidence from the NIP in Australia has demonstrated high rotavirus coverage with both RV1 and RV5, supportive of both direct vaccine protection, as well as with indirect herd protection. Expand
Impact of Rotavirus Vaccination on Diarrhea-related Hospitalizations Among Children <5 Years of Age in Mexico
TLDR
Marked declines in diarrhea-related hospitalizations among vaccine-eligible Mexican children <24 months of age have occurred during the first 2 complete rotvirus seasons following rotavirus vaccination, andRotavirus-specific surveillance and epidemiologic studies are necessary for a better understanding of the changes in disease epidemiology and public health impact from rotav virus vaccination. Expand
Decline in Rotavirus Hospitalizations and Health Care Visits for Childhood Diarrhea Following Rotavirus Vaccination in El Salvador
TLDR
Rotavirus vaccination had a substantial public health impact on rotav virus disease and overall diarrhea events in El Salvador and important age-related changes in diarrheal incidence emphasize the need for ongoing rotavirus surveillance after vaccine introduction. Expand
Effect of rotavirus vaccination on death from childhood diarrhea in Mexico.
TLDR
After the introduction of a rotavirus vaccine, a significant decline in diarrhea-related deaths among Mexican children was observed, suggesting a potential benefit from rotav virus vaccination. Expand
Rotavirus Vaccines in Belgium: Policy and Impact
TLDR
A decrease in the number of rotavirus infections and a 4- to 6-week delay in the onset of disease and the peak of incidence in the postvaccination period coincides with the increased vaccine uptake. Expand
WHO estimates of the causes of death in children
TLDR
A 4-year effort by WHO to improve the accuracy of estimates of the proportion of deaths in children younger than age 5 years attributable to pneumonia, diarrhoea, malaria, measles, and the major causes of death in the first 28 days of life is reported on. Expand
Rotavirus infection in infants as protection against subsequent infections.
TLDR
In infants, natural rotavirus infection confers protection against subsequent infection, which increases with each new infection and reduces the severity of the diarrhea. Expand
