Advocacy Toolkit

Advocacy is critical to transforming evidence into action. We provide downloadable presentation materials, factsheets, guides for media engagement, and more.

 What We Care About

Tremendous progress has been made in addressing morbidity and mortality from rotavirus disease. But more work is needed to reach all children who need rotavirus vaccines—particularly those living in low- and middle-income countries in Africa and Asia. That’s where we focus.

Our Goal: to accelerate the introduction of rotavirus vaccines through the use of evidence and strategic communications, targeting policymakers and other key decisions makers.
