Pneumocystis pneumonia in the UK – Health Protection Agency – 15 March 2013

Study recommends changes to pneumonia prevention strategies

“A Health Protection Agency (HPA) report published today has found since 2000 the number of cases of Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PCP) has increased in England by an average of seven per cent each year. The findings of the paper suggest that further work is needed to re-assess the prevention strategies currently in place for dealing with this infection.”
