Abstract: 

Rotavirus is recognized as a major cause of severe gastroenteritis in infants and has been estimated to be responsible for 20-70% of hospitalization for diarrhea among children world-wide. The greatest burden of disease falls on children in developing countries, where rotavirus accounts for an estimated 600 000 to 870 000 deaths per year. Despite the global recognition of this problem, many countries are unaware of the importance of rotavirus diarrhea in their own setting (Cunliffe et al, 2005, Bresee et al, 2004).
