The air we breathe in Nigeria

Nigeria has the highest burden of fatalities from air pollution in Africa and 4th globally. It’s the country with highest number of extremely poor people in the world and has the highest maternal mortality in the world. The air we breathe in Nigeria is so bad it kills that almost every breath taken is like the breath of death.

According to the just released annual State of the Global Air Report published by the Health Effects Institute (HEI), air quality in Nigeria and at least 10 other countries is among the deadliest anywhere on earth with higher than ambient air pollution death rates as a result of the environmental hazards combined with extreme pollution sources like generator fumes, vehicle emissions and crop burning among others.

We recommend that you consider investing in an air purifier.
