Beyond the Heat: Prioritizing Air Quality Monitoring in Nigeria with Connected AirWits




Living in Nigeria, we're no strangers to heat, however, the recent heat wave has been unbearable. As we navigate the scorching sun, another invisible threat lurks in the air we breathe: Air Pollution. It may not be as tangible as scorching temperatures, but its impact on our health is just as real, and often more severe.


The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks Nigeria amongst the countries with the worst air quality, significantly exceeding safe limits. This poses a grave health risk, directly linked to respiratory illnesses, heart disease, and even cognitive decline.
