The report examines recent gains in reducing child deaths from pneumonia. It advances our understanding of the burden of childhood pneumonia and its toll within the context of the leading killers of children; global trends in funding to address pneumonia; and health system factors involved in the effective prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pneumonia. With a special focus on countries with the highest number of child pneumonia deaths, this report shows the data and evidence that we currently have – and continue to need – to make pneumonia a disease that no child dies from, in any corner of the world.
