Project

Understanding the current childhood pneumonia management practices in a few selected low- and middle-income countries

The overall goal of this project is to understand the management and outcome of chest indrawing pneumonia in children 2-59 months of age presenting at the primary health care facility. 

Thus, it is essential to study a prospective observational study which will help to gather information from health facilities in some selected countries including Pakistan on outpatient management of children with chest indrawing pneumonia and its outcomes.

This will be a prospective observational cohort study. This will be a facility-based study using structured questionnaire with a sample of children under 2-59 months from Thatta region of Sindh – Pakistan. The hospital is selected based on overall patient turnover especially under 5 years old children and better monitoring and timely quality data sharing for entry through handheld devices.
