Although progress is being made in reducing the number of child deaths each year, pneumonia still kills more children than any other disease.
Fight pneumonia, safe a child, is the motto for the World Pneumonia Day, a day for the world to focus on the disease that kills more children than any other, pneumonia.
The new center will be managed by the Eixample Primary Health Care Consortium (CAPSE), a body composed of the Catalan Health Care Institute and Hospital Clínic, Barcelona. The center will house the Primary Care Team (EAP) of Barcelona Area 2-C, currently located in the outpatient building of Hospital Clínic, on C/. Roselló. It will have more space in which to provide quality health care in the catchment area. Special attention will be paid here to disease prevention and health promotion.
