Database of childhood acute respiratory infections in developing countries

In 2002, WHO’s Department of Child and Adolescent Health and Development developed a literature review database of published studies on acute respiratory infections. The database contains information directly abstracted from a total of 220 reviewed papers. No calculations or standardizations were performed. Before use, please refer to the detailed description of the database, which contains information on structure, variables and limitations.

In case you find that this database does not include important publications, please help WHO to complete it by sending an email to the following contacts:
