  1. Pneumonia in neonates : can it be managed in the community ?

    Article - En anglais

    Neonatal pneumonia kills about two million children a year worldwide.

    The World Health Organisation recommends hospitalisation of all cases of pneumonia in the first two months of infancy.

    In a field trial of community based management of childhood pneumonia in Gadchiroli, India, neonatal pneumonia contributed more than half of the pneumonia deaths.

    Parents refused referral even when advised therefore community based health workers and traditional birth attendants managed cases of neonatal pneumonia with co-trimoxazole.

    Case fatality was 15% (10/65) in all cases and 6% (3/52) in cases without high risk or referral indications.
