World Pneumonia Day

The fourth annual World Pneumonia Day was held on November 12, 2012. World Pneumonia Day was launched in 2009 by a broad coalition of public and nonprofit organizations—including the Sabin Vaccine Institute and PACE—to mobilize efforts to fight a neglected disease that kills more than two million children under age five every year.

Call to Action

Pneumococcal disease kills 1.6 million people each year – including 800,000 children under the age of five - and is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide. Vaccines are available now to safely and effectively protect children and adults against most pneumococcal infections. With increased awareness about this disease, and a commitment to purchase and deliver pneumococcal vaccines to children around the globe, we can save an estimated 5.4 million children’s lives by 2030. 

Special Projects

 
Sabin works with partners around the world, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Fundação Oswaldo Cruz (FIOCRUZ) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to convene symposiums that have brought together more than 2,400 of the world’s global health stakeholders to work on advancing vaccination as a cost-effective weapon in public health.
 
Sabin is dedicated to reducing the burden and impact of infectious diseases through the use of new and underutilized vaccines.
