Abstract: Abstract Infectious diseases are a leading cause of death in sub-Saharan Africa, and in Rwanda diarrhea, lower respiratory and other common infections are linked to high mortality and morbidity. For children <5 years of age, neonatal/congenital disorders rank second among causes of death in Rwanda. However, neither the burden of, nor immunity to, fever-causing viruses in children and adults are currently known. Despite recent progress of vaccination in Rwanda, childhood infections including me... more
