Providing Affordable & Natiowide Pneumonia Vaccine In Indonesia
Globally, pneumonia remains one of the leading causes of under-five child mortality; a child dies of pneumonia every 39 seconds. In Indonesia, childhood pneumonia is the second highest cause of underfive child mortality. More than 19,000 children under five years of age in Indonesia died from pneumonia in 2018. That’s more than two children every hour and 16% of under-five child deaths. Such high numbers of pneumonia deaths among children ranks Indonesia among the highest in the world—outranking all other Southeast Asian countries.
However, scientific evidence has shown that almost all child deaths from pneumonia are preventable. The most effective way to protect children from pneumonia is immunization, specifically immunization against Hib, pneumococcus, measles, and whopping cough (pertussis). Several effective vaccines are available for the prevention of childhood pneumonia today, and one of them is pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs).
