Is Household Air Pollution Even More Harmful Than We Thought? Emerging Evidence on the Health Impacts of Household Air Pollution

The relationship between household air pollution and illnesses like pneumonia and heart disease has been well documented. But emerging evidence suggests that the health impacts of household air pollution reach even further, contributing to negative birth outcomes, poor cognition, mental health disorders, and exacerbating COVID-19. New estimates from the World Health Organization show that exposure to household air pollution was responsible for 3.2 million deaths in 2019.

In this session health and air quality experts from across the globe with interdisciplinary backgrounds will discuss the latest and most critical research on clean cooking and health.  Participants will walk away with knowledge and be able to communicate about the latest research on household air pollution and health. The discussion will identify remaining research gaps at the intersection of clean cooking, air quality, and health, and will spur crossdisciplinarity collaboration to fill them.
