Oxygen treatment is essential for pregnant women and children with pneumonia, but oxygen supplies are not always accessible in low-resource settings. This infographic includes data on health burden and need, barriers to access, potential impact, and suggested advocacy actions to support the HO2PE campaign’s goal of increasing access to oxygen.
Oxygen is listed on the World Health Organization’s Model List of Essential Medicines (EML) and EML for children. This infographic, aimed at advocates and decision-makers, describes the “what,” “where,” “how,” and “how much” behind oxygen programs, and urges countries to align national policies to prioritize oxygen therapy across the entire health system.
Oxygen therapy could make the difference between life and death, especially for the most vulnerable—newborns, children, and pregnant mothers. Health advisors, practitioners and partners: be an advocate and elevate oxygen as a priority intervention and lifesaving treatment to country decision-makers.
