Malaria Consortium announces a new multi-country programme to improve diagnosis of pneumonia in four countries in Africa and Southeast Asia. The programme aims to reduce child mortality by identifying the most accurate and user-friendly diagnostic tools for the management of pneumonia in Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Cambodia.
Pneumonia is a leading cause of death in children under five, often as a result of late care-seeking, inappropriate treatment due to a lack of awareness of pneumonia symptoms and misdiagnosing symptoms as malaria.
