Pneumonia commonly causes hospitalizations and deaths among all age groups in Kenya, with major socio-economic burden. It is the main cause of childhood mortality worldwide. Adult pneumonia prevalence is also notably high but due to lack of data on its burden, disease outcomes and epidemiology, this work became necessary.
This was a cross-sectional.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
