Rotavirus is the leading cause of severe diarrhea in young children worldwide. In 2008, an estimated 453,000 children died from diarrhea caused by rotavirus, according to the World Health Organization. Each year, more than 2 million are hospitalized. NIAID supports a broad range of research to better understand, treat and ultimately prevent this serious global health problem.
