Dr. Coker’s article, Household Air Pollution Profiles Associated with Persistent Childhood Cough in Urban Ugana, is now on view at this link.
A preview of the background of Dr. Coker’s study:
“Most household air pollution (HAP) interventions in developing countries of sub-Saharan Africa have focused on a single source, such as replacing polluting cooking sources with cleaner burning cooking stoves. Such interventions, however, have resulted in insufficient reductions in HAP levels and respiratory health risks in children. In this study we determined how multiple HAP combustion sources and exposure-mitigation factors in the home environment influence child respiratory health alone and in combination.”
