How much meningitis is there in the world?

What's the second largest infectious killer of children in the world?

The UN IGME’s 2017 report shows that meningitis (in children 1-59 months old) plus meningitis/sepsis (in neonates) account for 9% of deaths in under-fives. This makes it the second largest infectious killer of children under five… responsible for more deaths than malaria, AIDS, measles and tetanus combined.
