The surveillance of enteric pathogens is critical in assessing the burden of diarrhoeal disease and informing vaccine programs. Surveillance supported by the World Health Organization in Fiji, Vietnam, the Lao People's Democratic Republic, and the Philippines previously focussed on rotavirus. There is potential to expand surveillance to encompass a variety of enteric pathogens to inform vaccine development for norovirus, enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli and Shigella.
