18 Oct WPD 2018 Event: Co-hosted event by Shot@Life & Johns Hopkins International Vaccine Access Center
To mark the tenth annual World Pneumonia Day, we gathered for an event highlighting the global fight against this leading killer of children. We reviewed progress made in the prevention and treatment of pneumonia over the last decade, and discussed the path forward as we aim to accelerate the pace of these lifesaving efforts. Attendees enjoyed a cocktail reception and heard from distinguished experts in global health.
The event was on November 13, 2018 in Washington, D.C. and was co-hosted by Shot@Life, a global childhood immunization advocacy campaign of the UN Foundation, and the International Vaccine Access Center of the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
