Supplementary Material

Appendix A-I details the English version of the needs assessment survey that we used as our standard questionnaire during our study. This survey was translated to Spanish, then back-translated to English for accuracy. Appendix A-II details the Spanish version of the needs assessment survey that was used in Honduras. Appendix A-III details the English version of the standard introduction that we used prior to each conducted survey. Appendix A-IV details the Spanish version of the standard introduction that we used prior to each conducted survey. Appendix B includes a table comparing frequency of reported respiratory symptoms by stove locations, statistically stratifying each stove location group by presence and absence of a chimney. This three-way comparison shows that the difference in respiratory symptoms between the three groups is no longer statistically significant once stratified by presence of a chimney within the home. Appendix B, Table 1 depicts a traditional adobe stove within a home in the village of La Hicaca, Yoro. Of note is the improper installment of the chimney, with a large gap between the chimney and the stove.
