Besides malaria, respiratory infections – including pneumonia, asthma, and corhizza - are also some of the most common community diseases. Although immunization service for pneumonia using the Dip+HepB+Hib vaccine are often offered at the hospital, very few mothers make it a point to take their children for immunization which predisposes them to the illnesses. My two year old host sister Zaharah, for example, cried all day when we arrived. She had a running nose, cough, and had been diagnosed with pneumonia a few days prior. For Zaharah, it took her mother a few days to decide to take her to the hospital; however she recovered quickly thereafter.
