The chimney supporting projects presumed that the respiratory illnesses which show, high prevalence in Nepal have a deep connection with the traditional house structures of Nepal where the kitchen and bedrooms are not separated; thus, with the direct participation of Dhulikhel Hospital region’s Healthcare team and the residents of the region, chimneys were installed in 700 households in Solumbu village and in 500 households in Bahunepati region, whereby it significantly reduced the number of respiratory patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and pneumonia.
