Championing the fight to stop pneumonia
Pneumonia is the world’s biggest infectious killer of adults and children – claiming one child every 50 seconds. Yet pneumonia remains a neglected disease – a “global cause without champions”.
COVID-19 could add 2 million to the death toll, bringing the total number of deaths to more than 4 million. No other infection causes anywhere near this burden of death.
Unless we take action now, it’s estimated that almost 6 million children will die from pneumonia over the next decade.
