Indoor and Outdoor Air Pollution and Their Health Impacts, in Poor Urban Settings in Nairobi

Program: Health and Systems for Health

Air pollution (both outdoor and indoor) is a critical public health challenge especially in the developing world where legislation on emissions control is either weak or non-existent. In these countries, majority of households rely on fuels for cooking and heating that have been classified as high source of pollution.  Studies, such as this one, have documented the negative effects of both outdoor and indoor air pollution on health in other parts of the world but there have been very few such studies in Africa.


The study uses a mixed-methods approach where a qualitative study is conducted to look at the perceptions and attitudes of residents regarding air pollution and a quantitative study that measures levels of both indoor and outdoor air pollution to establish the levels of air pollution and their association with health outcomes. The project is being implemented by two APHRC researchers enrolled in a sandwich PhD program at Umea University.
