The project aims to identify the most accurate, acceptable, scalable and user-friendly respiratory rate timers and pulse oximeters for diagnosis of pneumonia symptoms by community health workers and first line health facility workers in four low income countries - Cambodia, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Uganda. This research project is comprised of a series of 6 research stages, using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, occuring over an 18 month period. The project is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
