Norwegian funding for development of lifesaving vaccine

The Rota virus vaccine was launched as part of India's vaccination programme on 26 March 2016.

Working together with international research groups, Indian researchers have developed the Rotavac vaccine, which can save thousands of lives. Low pricing will make the vaccine accessible for millions of children in low and lower-middle income countries.

The GLOBVAC programme has helped to fund development of the vaccine with a contribution of NOK 24 million of the total project budget of NOK 180 million.

Globally, approximately half a million children under the age of five die from diarrhoea as a result of the rotavirus each year. The virus is spread as a result of poor hand hygiene and numerous countries in Africa and Asia are severely affected. 

For more information, please visit the GLOBVAC programme's website.
