Until 2030 pneumonia will kill about 11 million children. This Monday, experts urged to raise awareness of the world's largest infecting killer of infants.
In the developed world, heavy lung disease is largely influenced by older people, and in developing countries, hundreds of thousands of people die each year from this difficult disease.
Over 880,000 children, mostly under two years of age, died of pneumonia only in 2016.

"There are no pink ribbons, global summits or marches for pneumonia. But anyone who cares for the children and who is eager to access their health, our unforgivable killer must be a decisive factor in our age. "
In some countries, the Watsins Group, which carries out health programs, is suffering from the disease and urges the major pneumonia vaccines to lower prices.
