About the collection

Pneumonia is calling for submissions to our collection on Which children still die from pneumonia. The use of measles vaccines and the introduction of Hib and pneumococcal conjugate vaccines have reduced the burden of pneumonia in children, however child mortality associated with pneumonia continues to be a major public health problem. This collection will provide an update on the changing epidemiology of child pneumonia mortality, etiology, and risk factors worldwide. The collection will summarise ongoing challenges for pneumonia treatment and vaccination to prevent deaths. The collection will outline priorities for clinical care and research focused on further reductions in child pneumonia mortality.

There are currently no articles in this collection.
