Achievements in the control of acute respiratory infection (ARI) owe much to international collaboration in research, education, and delivery of services.
This article highlights some of the current activities of the many international agencies involved and summarizes thoughts on their future roles.
Key recent scientific advances include better surveillance, new and improved vaccines, refinement of standard clinical management plans and behavioral change techniques, and demonstration of the effectiveness of their application.
Agencies involved include the World Health Organization, the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, national government agencies for overseas aid, many academic departments, and professional lung health associations.
However, much remains to be done, especially in collaborative research, in the devising, implementing, and evaluating of health care delivery systems in low-income countries, and in mobilizing political will and resources.
These are tasks beyond the capacity of any lone agency.
Success will depend on how effectively we collaborate.
