HAPIT III can be used to estimate changes in health due to interventions designed to lower exposure to household air pollution. These interventions could be due to cleaner burning stoves, cleaner fuels, providing chimneys or other ventilation changes, movement of the traditional hearth to a different location, motivating changes in behavior, or a combination of the above. The tool allows the user to enter specific population inputs, and pre- and post-intervention exposure levels as it relates to the intervention in question. The model provides estimates of averted ill health due to the proposed intervention.
