How Air Pollution Impacts Maternal and Child Health

Air pollution, along with many other environmental factors, affects our health. Air quality is of particular concern in urban settings, especially for women and children. This video from the USAID-funded Building Healthy Cities (BHC) project highlights sources of air pollution, how it impacts the health of women and children, and actions we can take to improve air quality. This video is part of a series focusing on the connection between the environment and maternal and child health.

The BHC project is refocusing city policies, planning, and services with a multi-sectoral health equity lens while improving data-driven decision-making for Smart Cities in Indore, India; Makassar, Indonesia; Kathmandu, Nepal; and Da Nang, Vietnam.
