03 Dec World Pneumonia Day featured on the Mwana Ba Afrika Blog!
There seems to be a day for everything these days but I think that the 12th of November is particularly important to highlight as pneumonia is one of those diseases that slips through the cracks, and yet most of the deaths from this disease are in developing countries. When I found this out at work today I was quite shocked as I have never really heard that before though I have known people who have had it. I think a lot of the times, especially in hot countries, pneumonia seems counterintuitive. Even though it is an oxymoron, it occurs nonetheless. We need to pay even more attention to it as it is linked to diseases like HIV/AIDS and TB.
