We are convinced that a breakthrough in the fight against pneumonia is within reach.

On 26 and 27 April 2023, CaixaForum Madrid hosted the 2nd Global Forum on Childhood Pneumonia, which brought together more than 300 participants to analyse the new challenges that have arisen following COVID-19 and to decide on the main actions and measures to be implemented by the different governments to reduce child deaths from pneumonia and accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goal on child survival (SDG 3.2).

The two-day meeting brought together senior officials from 14 governments whose countries account for 60 % of all child pneumonia deaths, members of the Spanish government, leaders from the United Nations and multilateral development agencies, major donors, NGOs, private companies and the scientific community.

Twelve leading international health and children's organisations, ”la Caixa” Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, UNICEF, ISGlobal, USAID, Gavi The Vaccine Alliance, Every Breath Counts, Save the Children, Unitaid, PATH, Child Health Task Force and CHAI, took up this forum to address one of the biggest and most serious challenges facing children in the most vulnerable countries.

In January 2020, the first global conference on childhood pneumonia, the Global Forum, took place at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, a unique opportunity to ensure that pneumonia is placed at the forefront of national and global health agendas; to galvanise national action and mobilise the donor community to increase awareness of the scale of the pneumonia challenge.

Ministers and authorities from African and Asian countries, world leaders and experts in pneumonia and the most prestigious global health organisations and foundations took part.
