Uganda

Region: 

The under-5 mortality rate in Uganda is 74 per 1,000 live births according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Additionally, 7% of deaths are caused by lower respiratory infections, and 2% from Ischemic Heart Disease. Poor health effects from cookstoves that are commonly used in Uganda are one contributing factor to these statistics.

In response to this challenge, TRAction has worked with partners including PATH to increase the use of the Top-Lit UpDRAFT (TLUD) stove in low-income, peri-urban regions surrounding Kampala, Uganda. Lessons learned from the research include identification of the most effective behavior change communication (BCC) strategies that can be used to engage customers in the behavior changes required to use this cleaner stove.
