The AIR (Air Pollution Interdisciplinary Research) Network is an interdisciplinary research partnership of African and European researchers and African community members, with the long-term aim of creating innovative, participatory solutions to air pollution and its effects on human health in low-resource settings in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
We started work in October 2017 to build our network, working for an intense 18 months in Nairobi, Kenya.
We acknowledge the financial support for the AIR Network by the UK Arts and Humanities (AHRC) and Medical (MRC) Research Councils as part of the Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF).
Since then, we have gone on to win other funding, for example, some of the team are working on Tupumue, exploring lung health in youth in Mukuru and Buru Buru neighbourhoods in Nairobi. We are always on the look out for new funding and partners to help us tackle air pollution in Kenya and beyond.
