Few studies have focused on the effects of exposure to air pollutants from vegetation fire events (including forest fire and the burning of crop residues) among children. In this study we aimed to investigate the association between PM 10 concentrations and hospital visits by children to address respiratory disease, conjunctivitis, and der-matitis....
Background Upper Northern Thailand (UNT) has been episodically affected by air pollution from vegetation burning, which causes adverse respiratory health effects. However, no study has evaluated the effect of regulatory actions to prohibit vegetation burning on respiratory morbidity. We examined the effect of a burning ban enforced in May 2016 on h...
Smoke haze due to vegetation and peatland fires in Southeast Asia is a serious public health concern. Several approaches have been applied in previous studies; however, the concepts and interpretations of these approaches are poorly understood. In this scoping review, we addressed issues related to the application of epidemiology (EPI), health burd...
Background and aim The seasonal occurrence of vegetation fire in the Mainland Southeast Asia (MSEA) has deteriorated air quality, which can increase respiratory diseases. Nevertheless, no study has assessed the health burden from exposure to vegetation-fire smoke in the MSEA. We aimed to estimate the number of hospital visits from respiratory disea...
