Why join?

Over 900,000 children die of pneumonia every year. Despite being preventable, pneumonia continues to be a top killer of children under five. Pneumonia also wreaks 'breath-taking' havoc in lives of adults, particularly the elderly, and people living with HIV. 

A new report released in November 2015 shows that India has the highest number of pneumonia and diarrhoea deaths among children globally (297114 deaths). In 2015, these two diseases together were responsible for one in four deaths in children under five.

This webinar will provide you an opportunity to have a direct interface with lead experts, listen to their expert comments and brief presentations, and ask questions from them, live!
