Innovation Description

A “100-dollar-kitchen” with an improved cookstove for resource-poor settings
How does your innovation work?
Low-birth-weight (LBW) is a major adverse pregnancy outcome in resource-poor countries which is highly associated with biomass fuel’s exposure during cooking. To address this problem, International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (icddr,b) propose a “100-dollar-kitchen” with an improved cookstove for resource-poor settings. If proven successful, this exposure-effect intervention will be a pioneering innovation in reducing LBW in resource-limited societies.
