Treatment of pneumonia

 Early treatment of pneumonia with antibiotics can cure bacterial pneumonia.
As yet, there is no general treatment for viral pneumonia, although antiviral drugs may be helpful in particular instances.

Prevention of pneumonia

Preventing people from starting to smoke and stopping those who already smoke is one of the most important means of controlling pneumonia.
Vaccination against some organisms (influenza, pneumoccocus) reduces the likelihood of pneumonia in vulnerable groups.
