Despite advances in the understanding of diarrheal disorders and management strategies, globally nearly 750,000 children die annually as a consequence of diarrhea.  This paper looks at the possible impact of future vaccines for cholera, shigella and ETEC.  In addition this paper provides a second review and meta-analysis of the impact of rotavirus vaccine.
