12 Nov 2010 Pneumonia Report Card now available!
Pneumonia doesn’t have to take the lives of more than 1.5 million children each year, according to the 2010 Pneumonia Report Card.
By focusing on the gaPP interventions and on the countries that account for the overwhelming majority of child pneumonia deaths worldwide, this report card provides the first assessment of progress towards the gaPP targets among the 15 countries with the most pneumonia deaths. by illustrating the current levels of coverage for each gaPP intervention (vaccines, antibiotics and breastfeeding), this report shows where substantial progress in child survival is possible and needed, and helps focus efforts to achieve those targets in key countries.
