    - Title of Project: Avoid the TRAP: Multi-sector collaboration between health, education and environment to minimize impact of traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) on children in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 2021-2022.
    - Sector: Air pollution.
    - Country: Vietnam.
    - Lead Institution: University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City.
    - Co-PI Institution: N/A.
    - Partner(s): Live & Learn, D&L Technology Integration and Consulting JSC and RTI International.
    - Final Budget: $133,544.
    - Project Length: 24 months.
    - Research Objective:
    + To minimize the impact of traffic-related air pollution (TRAP) on children.
    - Project Description:
    + The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are approximately 60,000 deaths each year in Vietnam due to air pollution, and up to 70% of the total air pollution is from the transportation sector. Such data have demonstrated the danger of being exposed to air pollution caused by transportation or traffic-related air pollution (TRAP).
    + Children are a vulnerable population group and are often exposed to high levels of TRAP while travelling to and from school in urban settings. However, very little data on the health effects of TRAP in Vietnamese children are available, which hinders the development of appropriate policies to minimize TRAP and the exposure to TRAP in children. We aim to target this research gap by developing evidence-based products to promote community engagement in protecting school children from a high level of exposure to TRAP.

    - Embedded Research Translation Product:
    + Communication materials to protect from TRAP for children, parents, teachers and the public.
    + Public educational videos and news with free access.

    - Embedded Research Translation Audience:
    + Children, parents, teachers, doctors and local authorities.
    - Outputs:
    + Guidelines to protect from TRAP for children and parents.
    + Training materials for family doctors and health staff (posters, slides).
    + Training for family doctor networks.
    + A workshop for governmental agencies.
