Pneumonia is an inflammatory lung disease that mostly attacks children under five (5) years old and is the main cause of death of children in the world, especially developing countries including Indonesia. In Indonesia, this disease ranks second cause of child death. Pneumonia is an acute infection of the lung tissue (alveoli) which results in impaired lung function and the risk of causing death. In West Sumba District, the Government of West Sumba has conducted various socialization efforts on the dangers of Pneumonia, strengthening the system of handling sick children through MTBS (Management Terpadu Balita Sakit) at the puskesmas level and strengthening the role of cadres at the community level. But it was realized, government support in terms of policy and budget had not been maximized. Concern or participation of the community including religious leaders is very important to continue to increase awareness of all parties related to the importance of preventing Pneumonia.

eligious leaders are role models in the community and key people to deliver lectures to the community, in addition to delivering religious matters can also convey information related to awareness of the importance of maintaining health and preventing various diseases, especially Pneumonia.

Therefore, the role of religious leaders is very strategic so that religious leaders need to be involved in public health education such as conducting counselling or socialization based on their perspective religion. The example is when the bride candidate and groom related to the importance of maintaining family health, maternal and child health and how to protect and avoid the family from the dangers of Pneumonia
