On November 12th Save the Children is joining forces with the Global Coalition against Child Pneumonia to mark World Pneumonia Day. Across ten countries, Save the Children will be calling for governments to take decisive and urgent action to address this critical issue. Pneumonia is the single biggest killer of children in the world today, claiming the lives of 1.5 million children under five every year, and yet preventing and treating it is simple and cost effective. It isn’t happening because vital health workers are either not in place or they lack the antibiotics and training to be effective.
