November 12th is World Pneumonia Day. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among children globally. Every year, pneumonia kills more children under 5 years old than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.

On Friday, November 9th, ahead of World Pneumonia Day, singer/actress and PSI Ambassador Mandy Moore will co-host a media call with health experts from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and PSI to bring attention to modern, life-saving pneumonia prevention and treatment tools. If taken to scale, these tools would have a dramatic impact on the health of millions of children worldwide, and would make the goals of the recent Child Survival Call to Action a reality.
