The Every Breath Counts Coalition is in support of the Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 3.2, the Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health and the UN Secretary-General’s Every Woman, Every Child (EWEC) movement.
Pneumonia kills nearly 1 million children under the age of five around the world, causing more deaths than HIV/AIDS, diarrhea and malaria combined. For every $1 in global health assistance, only 2 cents is invested in fighting pneumonia, the leading killer of children in the world.
As a member of the EBC Coalition, ICV Group is pleased to announce it has launched the Every Breath Counts Fund to bring visibility to the burden of pneumonia and to catalyze investment in innovations and breakthrough technologies that target the leading killer of children under 5 as part of our overall effort to save women’s and children’s lives.
