Pneumonia is the number one cause of child deaths worldwide and can be prevented and treated.  One million children die from pneumonia each year accounting for nearly one in seven child deaths globally.  Only half of the children with pneumonia are taken to a healthcare provider and urgently addressing childhood pneumonia is critical to reducing child mortality.  Estimates suggest that if antibiotic treatments were universally provided to children with pneumonia, around 600,000 lives could be saved each year at a cost of US $600 million.  If both prevention and treatment interventions to reduce pneumonia deaths were universally provided, more than one million lives could be saved. The Collins Reynolds Foundation will purchase and/or partner with global pharmaceutical companies to provide antibiotics to save the lives of children.
