Experimental: Improved biomass cookstove with exterior ventilation
In phase 1, installation of an improved cookstove with ventilation to exterior is the active arm.
In phase 2, this improved biomass cookstove is the control arm.
Other: Improved biomass cookstove with exterior ventilation
Improved cookstove design installed in house that is higher efficiency and is vented to the exterior.
Other Name: Envirofit model G3555.
No Intervention: Traditional cookstove
In phase 1, the control arm is the traditional standard open burning cookstove in house.
Experimental: Phase 2 invervention arm (LPG stove)
In phase 2 of this project, households are individually randomized to either continuation of the improved biomass stove from phase 1, or a new LPG stove and gas for 12 months.
Other: Phase 2 intervention arm (LPG stove)
LPG two burner stove with a 12 month supply of LP gas.
