This report summarises public and philanthropic funding for pneumonia-related research by the G20 countries between 2000 and 2015 and provides detail of findings in specific areas: funding for diagnosis, therapeutics and vaccine research, research with a focus on the paediatric community, antimicrobial resistance, and funding of pneumonia research in high-risk areas.

The analyses presented here form part of the most comprehensive data set of global investments in infection-related research undertaken to date. Overall, volume of research into pneumonia is lower than is warranted by its burden of disease when compared to other high-burden infectious diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria.
