Broard-Search Annotated Bibliography on Acute Respiratory Infections (ARI) and Indoor Air Pollution

Author: Kammen, D. M., Wahhaj, G., Yiadom, M. Y.
Type: Generic
Year: 1998

Abstract:

That bibliography, compiled by John P. McCracken and Kirk R. Smith and published in 1997, contains 192 references pertaining to air pollution as a risk factor for acute respiratory infections (ARI). Its focus is ARI in young children in developing countries, who bear the greatest burden of ill-health from ARI worldwide and many of whom seem to have high exposures to a number of harmful air pollutants. A major purpose of the bibliography was to provide an easily accessed source of information on the relationship between ARI and air pollution to researchers and field staff in developing countries, where access to current publications may be limited. For this reason, abstracts were included whenever available. The references, which dated from 1968 to 1997, were collected from several databases, including Medline, Cambridge Abstracts, and the library database of the Environmental Health Project (EHP/USAID). Also included were reports, conference summaries, and other unpublished works from the authors’ collection at the University of California. This new annotated bibliography contains citations and abstracts for 235 papers that relate to air pollution and environmental exposure as a risk for acute respiratory infection (ARI). As did the predecessor volume, this bibliography focuses on children and environmental health conditions in developing nations.
