Access HAPIT. HAPIT estimates health changes due to interventions designed to lower exposures to household air pollution (HAP) of household members currently using unclean fuels (wood, dung, coal, kerosene, and others). These interventions could be due to cleaner burning stoves, cleaner fuels, other ventilation changes, motivating changes in behavior, etc. HAPIT currently uses background disease rates and relationships between exposure to PM2.5 and health outcomes described as part of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s 2013 Global Burden of Disease and Comparative Risk Assessment efforts.
