Dark Predictions for 2030

Nearly 11 million children will likely die from pneumonia by 2030, according to a new analysis released yesterday on World Pneumonia Day.

Children living in poverty are most at risk with more than 1.7 million children predicted to die in both India and Nigeria over the next 12 years, found the analysis from Save the Children and Johns Hopkins University. 

About 4 million of the projected global deaths could be averted with improved vaccination coverage, treatment and nutrition, according to projections using the Lives Saved Tool (LiST) developed by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health researchers.
