Brief description Prevention of pneumonia and ear disease is of global importance. This study aims to improve outcomes for children living in remote Indigenous communities and Developing countries in our Region. Vaccines and antibiotics are powerful health tools, but often fail in high-risk populations for these diseases. Technological advances allow us to better examine the causes of pneumonia and ear disease and measure effects of vaccines and antibiotics. This will allow us to design improved interventions.
