Sizing Up Pneumonia Investment 2018 Report

A 2018 report covering global pneumonia investments R&D. This report was launched and presented at the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting organised by Save the Children and UNICEF UK.

It includes an analysis of 16 years of funding trends for infectious disease research and shows pneumonia as receiving around 3% of public and philanthropic R&D spend. The investment in pneumonia was far less, compared to burden of disease, than other infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.

We all have a role to play in ending preventable child pneumonia deaths by 2030
