Summary
A day to promote interventions to protect against, prevent and treat pneumonia; and generate action to combat pneumonia.

World Pneumonia Day provides an annual forum for the world to stand together and demand action in the fight against pneumonia.

The first World Pneumonia Day was established by the Stop Pneumonia Initiative in 2009 to raise awareness about the toll of pneumonia – a leading killer of children around the world – and to advocate for global action to protect against, help prevent and effectively treat this deadly illness.

Pneumonia, the world's leading killer of children under the age of five.
