The UN Commission on Life-Saving Commodities, through its Child Health expert group, developed adaptable resources to help educate caregivers and frontline workers about the signs and symptoms of pneumonia and what needs to be done to treat children.

The resources are organized in a frontline health worker kit  and a caregiver kit, and are available in different regional/cultural variations and can be further adapted to suit local needs.

  • The frontline health worker kit contains everything you need to run an engaging and informative training program – including videos on chest in-drawing and fast breathing, tests and follow-up material.
  • The caregiver kit will help you arm your health workers with an attractively illustrated story and other materials so they can easily educate their communities about pneumonia.

The materials have been pre-tested across nine countries with both public and private sector frontline health workers and the caregivers they serve.
