Pneumonia and diarrhoea: Tackling the deadliest diseases for the world’s poorest children

Pneumonia and diarrhoea are leading killers of the world’s youngest children, accounting for 29 per cent of deaths among children under age 5 – or more than 2 million lives lost each year. Yet, levels of prevention and treatment remain low, particularly among the poor. This report, a comprehensive assessment of progress in the fight against pneumonia and diarrhea, makes a compelling argument for scaling up key interventions that can reduce the number of preventable child deaths.
