Healthy life expectancy (HALE)

The number of years that a person at a given age can expect to live in full health, taking into account the death and disability rates of the population they are part of.

Household air pollution

Household air pollution is a mixture of particles and gases resulting from incomplete combustion of fuels used in the home for heating and cooking. The GBD focuses on use of solid fuels (coal, wood, charcoal, dung, peat). In many places, HAP is also a key contributor to ambient air pollution, potentially affecting public health more broadly on national and regional spatial scales.
