Rotavirus vaccination has reduced infant deaths in Malawi by a third

A major study has demonstrated the success of the rotavirus vaccine in rural Malawi, cutting infant diarrhoea deaths by 34%. The study was a collaboration between scientists from the University of Liverpool (UK), University College London (UK), Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (MD, USA) and partners in Malawi.

The WHO recommends that the rotavirus vaccine be included in all national immunization programs, these findings recently published in The Lancet Global Health adds substantial support to this.
