Summary

Antibiotics can be a lifesaver for children in the developing world. They fight off pneumonia and other infections common among children in poorer areas of the world. Medicines we might take for granted, as they are available at every corner pharmacy, are beyond reach for many of the worlds children. Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of child deaths in the developing world, taking 2,500 lives a day. Antibiotics can change this staggering statistic.

Challenge

Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of deaths among children under-five, killing an estimated 2,500 children a day. Pneumonia accounts for 16 per cent of all under-five deaths and killed about 922,000 children in 2015. Most of those victims were under 2 years old.

Solution

With MAP International's extensive network of medical partnerships and over 60 years of service to healthcare providers in over 100 countries, MAP International procures antibiotics from US pharmaceutical companies and provides it to our partners on the ground providing healthcare to those in most need.

Long-Term Impact

In the last 5 years, child deaths from pneumonia has decreased by 47 percent, from 1.7 million to 922,000 million. With your help we can drop this staggering number and save even more lives from preventable deaths.
