Pneumonia Training and Education

Pneumonia is the single largest infectious cause of death in children under five worldwide. But with early detection, prompt care-seeking, and correct diagnosis, it is treatable. And with education, it can even be preventable.

Every Breath Counts

To aid in earlier recognition and care seeking, the Diarrhea & Pneumonia Working Group has created the Every Breath Counts programme of educational kits for caregivers and multimedia training kits for frontline health workers.

These kits are easy to use and understand, align to the WHO/UNICEF iCCM pneumonia guidelines, and are extensively researched.

    Caregiver Kit

    This kit will help you arm your health workers with an attractively illustrated story and other materials so they can easily educate their communities about pneumonia.

The kits are available in different languages, regional/cultural variations (African, African Muslim and South Asian), and can be further adapted to suit local needs. This means that your organisation can get on with the job of saving lives much faster and at a much lower cost.

The kits are already getting positive feedback from the frontline:

The message is so clear and well illustrated that a lot of mothers will change their behaviors” – Frontline Health Worker – DRC.

The message of the story is very attractive and true. If we know about pneumonia, its causes, when to return for treatment, when to prescribe medicine, how to prevent pneumonia we can provide service easily to pneumonia affected children.” – Community Health Worker – Tanzania
