Abstract:

Indoor air pollution which poses a critical threat to human health with ambient and household air pollution through exposure to pollutants in urban and rural areas in India. The present study was undertaken with the objective to assess the health problems faced by tribal household kitchens. The study was carried out in Udaipur district of Rajasthan state. A sample of hundred households i.e. 50 households from Challi Village and 50 households from Bisama village were selected randomly to explore the health problems associated with existing indoor air quality. For accomplishing the objectives of the present study, interview technique was used to get the information from the respondents. For this purpose an interview schedule was developed after extensive review of literature and in consultation with the subject matter specialists. Both health related problems and problems related to burning of fuel were found to be ‘most severe’ in nature at the time of using crop residues/twigs in traditional chulha. Health problems (3.22) found most severe in comparison to problems related to burning of fuel (3.11). Most of these problems are because of the smoke generated from the burning of biomass in traditional chulha.
