Project Vishwaas

Globally, 802,000 children under the age of five years have died from pneumonia in 2018, with approximately 127,000 deaths reported from India alone; this accounts for one child every four minutes. In response to this dire situation, Save the Children, India have developed and provided low-cost innovative solutions to prevent, diagnose, and manage Childhood Pneumonia. Aligned with India’s goal of Integrated Action Plan for Pneumonia and Diarrhoea (IAPPD), this two-year pilot programme titled ‘Project VISHWAS (Breath of Hope)’ is set to bring high-quality pneumonia care to approximately 90,000 children under five years across 45 urban wards in Rajasthan, and two rural blocks in Uttar Pradesh. Additionally, a two-day workshop was organized in Rajasthan intending a socio-behavioural acceptance to apprise the participants on the goals of our flagship project on Childhood Pneumonia.
