Particulate matter (PM) is an important metric for studying the health effects of household air pollution. There are limited data on PM exposure for children in homes that use biomass fuels, and no previous study has used direct measurement of personal exposure in children younger than 5 years of age. We estimated PM(2.5) exposure for 1266 children in The Gambia by applying the cookhouse PM(2.5)-CO relationship to the child's CO exposure. Using this indirect method, mean PM(2.5) exposure for… CONTINUE READING
