Global Forum on Childhood Pneumonia 29-31 January 2020

Every Breath Counts https://stoppneumonia.org/latest/global-forum/

The Global Forum on Childhood Pneumonia is a major opportunity to ensure that pneumonia is at the forefront of national and global health agendas; galvanise national action, and mobilise the donor community to increase awareness of the scale of the pneumonia challenge.

 

ISGlobal, Save the Children, UNICEF, Every Breath Counts, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ”la Caixa” Foundation, USAID, Unitaid and Gavi have joined forces to address one of the greatest and gravest health challenges facing children around the world.

 

As the world’s first conference on childhood pneumonia – taking place on 29-31 January 2020 at CosmoCaixa in Barcelona, Spain – the Global Forum sets out to agree practical pathways that governments and their partners can take to meet the Sustainable Development Goal on child survival and the Global Action Plan for Pneumonia and Diarrhea (GAPPD) target of three child pneumonia deaths per 1,000 live births.

 

This is not a forum for reflection, but a call to action to deliver concrete measures with the potential to save hundreds of thousands of children’s lives.
