Theme: Every Breath Counts: Stop Pneumonia in its Track
Pneumonia remains a critical global health concern, affecting millions annually. Its impact is particularly harsh on vulnerable populations, underscoring the urgency for heightened awareness and proactive measures.
PNEUMONIA: What You Should Know:
Pneumonia is an inflammatory lung condition affecting the air sacs, leading to symptoms like cough, difficulty breathing, and chest pain.
While it can affect people of all ages, it poses a higher risk to infants, elderly individuals, and those with weakened immune systems. Common causes include bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Pneumonia Prevention and Management:
– Vaccination: Ensure timely vaccinations, especially for at-risk populations.
– Good Hygiene: Practice regular handwashing to reduce the risk of respiratory infections.
– Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain overall health through a balanced diet and regular exercise.
– Timely Medical Attention: Seek prompt medical care for respiratory symptoms to prevent complications.
