[Perspectives] Majid Ezzati: a positive enthusiasm for global health

Among the books on the shelves of Majid Ezzati’s office in the Imperial College Faculty of Medicine at St Mary’s Hospital in London are three small black iron cooking stoves of the kind found by the million in huts and houses in low-income countries around the world. In most offices you might view the stoves as offbeat mementos of a conference somewhere, or a holiday. These are not. Their presence reflects a line of research that Ezzati has been pursing for two decades: the malign effects of the smoke they emit.
