Rotavirus in Asia: Updates on Disease Burden, Genotypes, and Vaccine Introduction

This special edition of the journal Vaccine broadens understanding of rotavirus disease burden, which is responsible for almost half of acute diarrhea hospitalizations among Asian children under five. In addition to documenting rotavirus incidence and resulting hospitalizations in countries throughout Asia—from Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, and India to China, Vietnam, and the rest of the Pacific Rim region—the edition also covers the distribution of rotavirus genotypes across the region and vaccine introduction efforts.
