World Health Organization: Indoor Air Pollution Projects and Programs

Indoor smoke contains a range of health-damaging pollutants, such as small particles and carbon monoxide, and particulate pollution levels may be 20 times higher than accepted guideline values. To combat this substantial and growing burden of disease, WHO has developed a comprehensive programme to support developing countries. WHO's Programme on Indoor Air Pollution focuses on: Research and evaluation; Capacity building; and Evidence for policy-makers.
