DCP3 Contributors Lead Discussion on Household Air Pollution in Video Series

This Week in Global Health (TWiGH) is an online-based global platform led by a multi-disciplinary team of young professionals who facilitate global health engagement worldwide with the goal of creating a collaborative community for global health students and professionals. 

DCP3 Injury Prevention and Environmental Health volume editor, Dr. Kirk Smith and chapter author Ajay Pillarisetti - along with This Week in Global Health's Dr. Jessica Taaffe - participated in the latest episode of TWiGH to discuss household air pollution. The panelists covered the association of household air pollution with diseases such as tuberculosis, the  importance of looking at the use solid cook fuels as a public health and environmental issue, and the need to accelerate the transition to clean cooking. 

Two other DCP3 volumes have been the topic of discussion on previous TWiGH episodes.  The first video, released in June 2017, was on essential surgery and the second, released in September 2017, covered global cancer.
