Progress on Childhood Pneumonia 2017 – 2021

Childhood pneumonia is arguably the world’s single most neglected disease. Every year, the illness claims the lives of some 800,000 children, making it the single biggest killer of children. That shocking figure – a life lost every 39 seconds – is falling more slowly than for other major killers, and too slowly for the world to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) of an end to preventable childhood deaths. Despite the death toll and the slow pace of progress, pneumonia has received insufficient attention from the international community and – sadly – from the governments of countries in which pneumonia is a major cause of childhood mortality.

For the millions of children around the world who today face the deadly threat of pneumonia, the stakes could not be higher. I hope – and believe – that Save the Children’s work on pneumonia has demonstrated that, even in an era marked by grinding under-ambition in international cooperation, change is possible when we combine our resources and work together.
