Caregivers' perception and understanding in the illness influences the care a sick child receives. Studies in Ghana and elsewhere have routinely shown sufficient recognition of malaria by caregivers. Similarly, proof from Asia and some African nations have shown sufficient understanding on pneumonia. Even so, in Ghana, little has been documented about neighborhood awareness, knowledge, perceptions and management of childhood pneumonia especially in the Dangme West district. Consequently this formative study was conducted to establish community perceptions of pneumonia for the objective of informing the design and implementation of context certain wellness communication techniques to market early and appropriate care looking for behaviour for childhood pneumonia. Approaches: A mixed strategy strategy was adopted. Data were obtained from structured interviews (N = 501) and eight concentrate group discussions created up of 56 caregivers of under-fives and eight community Important Informants. Descriptive and inference statistics have been made use of for the quantitative information and grounded theory to guide the analysis from the qualitative data. Outcomes: Two-thirds in the respondents had never heard the name pneumonia. Most respondents did not know concerning the indicators and symptoms of pneumonia.
