My elective will focus on performing a cost effectiveness and financial analysis of the current trial, Cardiopulmonary Outcomes in Household Air Pollution (CHAP), in Puno, Peru. CHAP is a randomized field intervention testing the efficacy of LPG stove use and fuel distribution, compared to traditional, opne-fire stove use as a strategy to reduce household air pollution and improve cardiopulmonary outcomes. I am developing a cost effectiveness analysis plan for this intervention, which is the project I am proposing in my Fogarty application and NRSA application to be submitted later this fall. The Lietman scholarship will allow me to travel to Puno to perform field costing work, which is a critical skill and data collection method, needed to perform a cost effetiveness analysis. I plan to travel to Puno two times to perform costing measurements during the two phases of the intervention. Additionally, to enhance my understanding of conducting a field trial, I will be overseeing quality control of health outcomesdata collected and this visit will allow me to see the manner in which this data is collected. As in home air pollution reduction has become a goal of the WHO, methods to know the costs to replicate an effective intervention are greatly needed.
