WHO estimates that in 2005 some four million people died of chronic respiratory diseases with exposure to biomass fuels as the biggest risk factor in low- and middle-income countries.

Hundreds of millions of people suffer worldwide from a chronic respiratory disease. 235 million people have asthma, 64 million people have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) while millions of others suffer from other often-undiagnosed chronic respiratory diseases. Chronic respiratory diseases are silent killers, neglected but leading causes of death.
