Factsheets

Gas stoves and asthma in children

Our latest factsheet, in collaboration with the National Asthma Council, looks at the link between the use of gas stoves and childhood asthma. The information for this was based on our research findings from April 2018 which showed that 12 per cent of childhood asthma is attributed to the use of gas stoves for cooking.

We provide submissions on areas related to our research programs and our expertise. 

Funding initiatives

As part of its capacity building function, CAR regularly provides seed funding for research projects related to its research themes. It also provides PhD top ups and project and support grants. Find out more details via the following link.
