A bronchodilator is placed atop of a prescription treatment paper that belongs to Shahrour's son who is suffering from asthma, inside their home in the besieged town of Arbeen, in Damascus suburbs, Syria February 6, 2016. Shahrour said he developed diabetes at the beginning of the war in Syria. A lack of insulin led to his medical condition worsening and his right foot had to be amputated. Recently he also suffered a stroke that paralysed half his face. He and part of his extended family, a total of 18 people, live together and struggle to get by.

A girl asks a passerby for help to pay a medical bill as her father sits in his wheelchair in the Douma neighbourhood of Damascus Syria February 3, 2016. Reuters Photographer Bassam Khabieh: "Shahrour, 54, developed diabetes at the beginning of the war in Syria. When the siege of Arbeen, in the Damascus suburbs, began, his medical condition worsened and his right foot was amputated. He can no longer work. He and some of his extended family, a total of 18 people, live in the same house. One son, 24, has chronic asthma and also cannot work. His children include two daughters. 'When my pregnant daughter went to hospital in the city of Douma, she needed a drug which was not available in the hospital. (...) I did not have the money to buy the prescription...' He broke down in tears. Medication for father and son costs about $15 a month. The family cannot always raise that as the income of those in work varies each day. 'We couldn't buy firewood' in winter, he said. 'My children would collect some during the day which would burn in one hour on a long cold winter's night. When the weather got too cold, we burnt the old cotton pillows.' Shahrour thinks he and his family should flee their town, and also leave Syria. He knows the situation is no better outside, he said. Nor can he afford to shoulder the financial burdens he may face outside Syria. He and his family have no option but to stay, hoping for a breakthrough."

L.D. Chopra, 76, an asthmatic patient, breathes through an oxygen mask while lying on a bed at his residence in New Delhi June 9, 2014. For Chopra, the power cuts were almost the difference between life and death. Chopra was rushed to hospital on May 31 after falling unconscious when a machine he depends on for oxygen support switched off in the outages, he told Reuters. Like Chopra's residence in the east of the city, much of Delhi has been without power for 10 hours per day in the last week, after a jump in demand and damage from a thunderstorm overwhelmed the grid, causing blackouts.

His air purifier kits, costing just 200RMB ($32) compared to top-of-the-line purifiers that cost up to $8,000, according to organizers, provide a low-cost solution to China's air pollution problem.

People unwrap plastic fans during a workshop organized by Smart Air Filters at a local coffee shop in Shanghai April 10, 2014. Thomas Talhelm, a PhD student in cultural psychology at the University of Virginia, and founder of Smart Air Filter, began experimenting with HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters and a simple plastic fan to remove tiny but hazardous particulates, called PM 2.5, from the air indoors. His air purifier kits, costing just 200RMB ($32) compared to top-of-the-line purifiers that cost up to $8,000, according to organizers, provide a low-cost solution to China's air pollution problem. Experts said chronic exposure to particle pollution can aggravate asthma, increase the risk of heart disease and even shorten life.

Fazal Uddin, 80, lies on a bed as he suffers from asthma, in Haragach, Rangpur district, Bangladesh July 11, 2013. According to Uddin's family, he became sick as he used to work in a 'bidi' (cigarrette) factory for 8-10 years. According to a 2012 study by US-based NGO, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, over 45,000 people in Bangladesh are employed in manufacturing inexpensive cigarettes known as bidis and this number includes “many women and children working in household based establishments where they make low wages and live in poverty.” A 2011 research paper about bidi workers in Bangladesh, published in the journal Tobacco Control, says that working conditions can involve poor ventilation and exposure to tobacco dust, which can cause a range of health problems including respiratory and skin diseases. International attention has been focused on workers’ safety in Bangladesh since the disaster at Rana Plaza, a garment factory complex which collapsed in April, killing 1,132 workers.
