Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhoeal disease in young children. Globally, 215 000 children aged under 5 years die due to rotavirus disease each year. In the WHO Western Pacific Region, 30-40% of diarrhoeal hospitalizations among children aged under 5 years are attributable to rotavirus infection. Countries that have introduced rotavirus vaccines in their national immunization programmes (NIPs) have found that vaccination reduced rotavirus-related hospitalizations by up to 92% and hospitalizations related to all causes of diarrhoea by up to 55%.  Recent studies show that national rotavirus vaccination programmes are highly cost-effective and also reduce healthcare costs due to rotavirus-related illness.

Compared with other WHO regions, fewer countries in the Western Pacific have introduced rotavirus vaccines into their NIPs. This may be due to the lack of recognition of the burden of rotavirus disease and the cost-effectiveness of vaccination, competing priorities in introduction of new vaccines and concerns about financial sustainability of the immunization programmes following introduction of additional new vaccines.  This proposed meeting will highlight: the burden of rotavirus disease in the Western Pacific Region, national immunization policies and programmes of the Region, recent developments of vaccines to be used for prevention and control of rotavirus diseases, financial and programmatic implications and bottlenecks related to the introduction of rotavirus vaccine into NIPs. Participants will share experiences and lessons learnt for overcoming barriers and challenges for practical and sustainable introduction of rotavirus vaccine into NIPs
