November 24, 2019, 11:15 AM – 1:00 PM Potomac D (Ballroom Level)
Pneumonia remains the leading infectious killer of children under five years in the world and therefore improving case management of pneumonia is a key component in achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3.2, which requires all countries to reduce their Child Mortality Rates to, “at least 25 deaths per 1,000 live births” by 2030.
