The story of why pneumonia is the biggest killer of children

The EU has pioneered Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Health Systems Strengthening in global health. During the event Save the Children will tell a story that cuts to the heart of UHC. The story of why pneumonia kills children, shows who and what we neglect in health systems in partner countries. It speaks to the interdependence of health, nutrition, gender equality and access to water and sanitation. Pneumonia is preventable, it shouldn’t be the biggest killer of children. The reasons why it is, shows that poor and marginalised children are still among the most left behind. We will talk about the solution to ending preventable child deaths from diseases like pneumonia which is to strengthen health systems and provide access to healthcare for all.
