Contracted to carry out the first ever air quality study to investigate exposures to particulate matter to young children suffering for acute respiratory illness across various districts in South Vietnam. This study involved several agencies and local environmental groups in Vietnam and our work led to the first insight on actual exposures and health outcomes that was coupled with conducting a hospital based admissions survey to understand chronological timelines of exposures leading to overall health.
