Cameroon announced the introduction of rotavirus vaccines into its routine immunisation programme

Cameroon announced the introduction of rotavirus vaccines into its routine immunisation programme with GAVI Alliance support. Rotavirus results in almost 6,000 death of Cameroonian children under five each year. GAVI Deputy CEO Helen Evans said, “Immunisation is one of the best investments that a country can make in the health and well-being of its children. Cameroon’s decision to protect its children against severe diarrhoea by vaccinating them against rotavirus will have a strong, positive impact on families and communities across the country.”
