About the Coalition

The Global Coalition Against Child Pneumonia was established in 2009 to raise awareness about the toll of pneumonia, the world’s leading killer of children, and to advocate for global action to protect against, effectively treat, and help prevent this deadly disease. Comprised of over 140 non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, academic institutions, government agencies, and foundations, the Coalition provides leadership for World Pneumonia Day, marked every year on November 12th.

We welcome new members: Join the Coalition and sign up to receive the Coalition newsletter.
