Malaria Consortium’s Pneumonia Diagnostics Project

Presenter: Akasiima Mucunguzi, Malaria Consortium

Malaria Consortium’s Pneumonia Diagnostics project is identifying the most accurate and acceptable respiratory rate counters and pulse oximeters to support CHWs and FLHFWs in the detection of pneumonia symptoms in children aged 0 to 59 months. During the session a range of pneumonia diagnostic devices will be demonstrated, including pulse oximeters (handheld, fingertip, and mobile phone based devices) and respiratory counters. A film showing our work in the field will also be available to watch.
