We are pleased to welcome you to the RSV GOLD website.
The RSV Global Online Mortality Database, abbreviated as RSV GOLD, is the first global registry for young children dying with RSV infection.
Our aim is to identify clinical and socioeconomic characteristics of these children. Ultimately, we strive to combat RSV-associated childhood mortality.
As RSV presents a global health problem, we have adopted a worldwide approach. Deaths are shared from countries all over the world, making the RSV GOLD project a joint effort by collaborators across the globe.
The RSV GOLD project is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
We greatly appreciate the support we receive and the continued efforts of our enthusiastic collaborators:
