Indoor air pollution

Indoor air quality guidelines: household fuel combustion

Guidelines draw on diverse evidence

Nigel Bruce/WHO

Building on existing WHO guidelines for indoor air quality on selected pollutants, the new guidelines are informed by the best available evidence, including newly commissioned or published, systematic reviews.

The authors have also used strict criteria to assess the quality of available evidence and develop practical recommendations for public health policy-makers, as well as specialists working on energy, environmental and other issues.

Eleven distinct evidence reviews are available as listed below, along with a description of methods used to evaluate the strength of evidence and resulting recommendations.
