Evaluating the Child Health Benefits of Clean Cooking

The children’s health impacts of exposure to household air pollution (HAP) are immense and in response the Alliance has funded several randomized controlled trials to evaluate the impacts on child survival from switching to clean cooking fuels. Researchers on this panel will discuss the impacts of HAP on children’s health and provide a preview of preliminary results from Alliance-funded studies in Ghana, Nepal, and Nigeria. Participants will come away with a better understanding of the current state of the research and how the results are driving the clean cooking and fuels sector.
