Rwanda to represent Africa in clean cooking trial

Researchers and citizens in Rwanda will represent Africa in a US$30 million trial into the potential lung benefits of alternative cooking methods.

The study, funded by the US National Institutes of Health and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, will involve 3,200 households in four countries.

The study will examine the health benefits of liquefied petroleum gas cooking stoves, a cleaner alternative to traditional, more hazardous, cooking methods. Many large international funders, including the Gates Foundation, have been funding clean cooking alternatives in Africa for years.
