ABODE: Air Burden of Disease Explorer

who_homes.png Access ABODE. ABODE 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, providing chimneys or other ventilation changes, movement of the traditional hearth to a different location, motivating changes in behavior, or a combination of the above. ABODE can also estimate changes in health due to changes in ambient air pollution from household interventions that may not be measured in normal household exposure measurements. With some care in entering input parameters, it can be used for evaluating other interventions to reduce HAP, including those for lighting and spaceheating.
