Eleventh International Rotavirus Symposium Held in New Delhi, India

New Delhi, India — September 3, 2014 — The Eleventh International Rotavirus Symposium today began just two months after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the Government of India would provide a rotavirus vaccine to all Indian children, and weeks before the highly anticipated UN General Assembly’s 69th opening session, which will assess progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Supporting the Global Vaccine Action Plan

Vaccination is among the greatest public health achievements of the 20th century, banishing feared diseases from the lives of those fortunate enough to be immunized. But 1.5 million children continue to die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Global Vaccine Action Plan

The Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) is a framework to end that inequity and extend the benefits of vaccination to everyone, regardless of where they are born.

Rotavirus is the most common cause of diarrhea, one of the world’s leading killers of children.
