The Programme Manager for Child Health in the Ministry of Health and Sanitation said the pre-launch of the pneumonia campaign in Sierra Leone is to create visibility and raise awareness on the Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI) in the country. Reverend Doctor Thomas Samba said the ARI mostly affect children and was largely responsible for infant deaths in the country. He said government and the World Health Organisation was already on the stage of co-funding to make it available in the country noting Sierra Leone was the first country in Africa to access such opportunity.  Dr. Samba told CTN that it was good for parents to embrace the seven vaccines in the programme which would prevent ten childhood killer diseases.  Dr. Samba added that the ministry was currently preparing to formally launch the vaccine in Bo at the end of this month.  He said the government and private health institutions would routinely deliver the service to children under five.
