Optimizing Ventilation to Improve Health

Our overall goal is to optimize preferred, ventilating windows/apertures/vents in low-income neighborhoods of Dhaka, Bangladesh. We will:

I. Collect baseline data on housing types and finalize windows/vents protoypes.

II. Measure the impact of improved ventilation on air exchange rates in houses in low-income neighborhoods of Dhaka and characterize the current and potential market for windows/vents in households in low-income neighborhoods of Dhaka, Bangladesh.

III. Understand recipients' (tenants and landords) perceived benefits of installed window/vent designs and difficulties faced with adoption of each design
