Despite the high mortality, pneumonia retains a relatively low profile among researchers, funders and policymakers. Here, we reflect on the problems and priorities of pneumonia in Ghana, briefly review the evidence base and reflect upon in-person discussions between Southampton-based authors Head and Batchelor, and academic, clinical and policy colleagues in Ghana. The discussions took place in Accra in August 2017.

Abstract

Despite the high mortality, pneumonia retains a relatively low profile among researchers, funders and policymakers. Here, we reflect on the problems and priorities of pneumonia in Ghana, briefly review the evidence base and reflect upon in-person discussions between Southampton-based authors Head and Batchelor, and academic, clinical and policy colleagues in Ghana. The discussions took place in Accra in August 2017.
