The Every Breath Counts Coalition is a public-private partnership to support national governments to end child pneumonia deaths by 2030.
An unprecedented number of organizations representing governments, business, United Nations and development agencies has joined forces in the Every Breath Counts Coalition; a first-of-its-kind partnership to support national governments to end preventable child pneumonia deaths by 2030, with a special focus on the countries with the largest populations of children under five at greatest risk of death.
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.
