Greatest killer of children...

Maria, just the eight-months old, has been coughing for two weeks. When she cam she was breathing heavily, coughing constantly. Her chest X-ray showed the right upper lung saturated with infection. In North America we have a host of tests to show the exact organism causing her pneumonia. But in here we simply choose the most probable cause and start initiate treatment.

Sadly pneumonia is the leading killer of children worldwide. We know that adequate nutrition, vaccination, and protective housing will protect them. Giving their mothers a sound basic education will also increase their likelihood of survival . But most of all, we have to be able to treat the child immediately, before the infection is too strong to be beaten. We have a long way to go.
