Pneumonia kills nearly 1 million children under the age of five around the world, causing more deaths than HIV/AIDS, diarrhea and malaria combined. In Nigeria, more than 360 children die from pneumonia every day from pneumonia. Together, we can change this.
By 2030, end preventable deaths of newborns and children under 5 years of age, with all countries aiming to reduce neonatal mortality to at least as low as 12 per 1,000 live births and under-5 mortality to at least as low as 25 per 1,000 live births.
Every Breath Counts 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.
“The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
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.
