Abstract

The UN's Millennium Development Goal 4 aims for a two-thirds reduction in deaths among children under five by 2015. With pneumonia being the number one killer of children under five,1 this can only be achieved if we prevent and protect children from pneumonia-related deaths - and that will take global commitment and investment in life-saving interventions, like vaccines.
