Starting in 2017 Hoonah Indian Association began to monitor indoor air
quality (PM 2.5 and Carbon Monoxide) for the first time. Working with
Alaska Native Health Consortium we developed a strategy for air quality
monitoring. We found stoves greater than 20 years old were at risk for
introducing more PM 2.5 into household. Armed with that data we began
to look for improvements we could implement in the impacted homes.
However, we had a lot of questions about implementing a program.
This final report documents our air quality program and all the work we did over the past three years. This document was designed to be used as a reference guide for tribes or communities that are considering conducting a study/project like ours.HIA-Air-Quality-Report
