Impact and Effectiveness of Rotavirus Vaccines in Africa

This special issue of the journal Vaccine contains 21 articles that together provide additional rotavirus vaccine effectiveness and impact data from a broad range of African countries, describe the longer-term impact and potential indirect benefits of rotavirus vaccination programs, describe trends in circulating genotypes in the pre- and post-vaccine introduction eras, and evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a rotavirus vaccination program in a post-introduction setting. As countries begin transitioning away from relying on support from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, for vaccination programs, these findings provide evidence of the impact and effectiveness of rotavirus vaccination programs under conditions of routine use. ABSTRACTS ONLY for most articles. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
