Household air pollution (HAP) from burning wood, charcoal, dung, agricultural waste and other solid biomass cooking fuels affects 2.7 billion people worldwide – 38% of humanity – and causes 4 million premature deaths a year. That’s more than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis (TB) combined. Exposure to HAP is associated with pneumonia, COPD, lung cancer, TB, cardiovascular disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes and cataracts.
