04 Nov Fifth Annual World Pneumonia Day: Innovating to Fight Child Pneumonia
Posted at 14:16h in Blog
The Global Coalition Against Child Pneumonia announced today the theme of the 2013 World Pneumonia Day commemorations will be “Innovation”. In the days leading up to World Pneumonia Day, celebrated every year on November 12, advocates will call upon governments to invest more in the development of new diagnostics and treatments. This year’s activities will also focus on the clear link between pneumonia and diarrhoea, which was the theme of the recently published Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Pneumonia and Diarrhoea (GAPPD).
