Household air pollution (HAP), caused by the indoor burning of wood, crop residue, and other solid fuels, cause millions of premature deaths every year. Correct and consistent use of clean cooking technologies and fuels can reduce HAP, but adoption requires significant changes to existing cooking behaviors. The USAID | TRAction Project has sponsored a special issue of the Journal of Health Communication to feature new findings on behavior change in the clean cooking section. Join us as several of the guess editors and authors of the special issue discuss lessons learned and next steps for behavior change in the clean cooking sector.
