Abstract: Indoor air pollution (IAP) is a major environmental health problem in Nepal. Most of the poor in the country cook in poorly ventilated kitchens using inefficient stoves that burn wood and other biomass fuels creating a dangerous cocktail of hundreds of pollutants. They, therefore, suffer from numerous respiratory health problems. In a recent study, Min Bikram Malla Thakuri looked at the costs and benefits of a particular indoor air pollution control initiative and found that it offers a viable and cost-effective way of dealing with IAP.
