Globally, pneumonia remains one of the leading causes of under-five child mortality; a child dies of pneumonia every 39 seconds. In Indonesia, childhood pneumonia is the second highest cause of underfive child mortality.

However, scientific evidence has shown that almost all child deaths from pneumonia are preventable. The most effective way to protect children from pneumonia is immunization, specifically immunization against Hib, pneumococcus, measles, and whopping cough (pertussis). To address the severe problems of pneumonia, to protect and prevent more children from pneumonia, Save the Children Indonesia together with their in-country partners has been actively advocating and campaigning for stopping pneumonia for children under-five in Indonesia since 2017.
