Title
ApTibeT Refugee Projects in Ladakh
Authors (non HEDON members)
Greta Jensen
Abstract
Appropriate Technology for Tibetans' Integrated Health and Sanitation Project for Tibetan refugees has been established for many years in Ladakh, north India near the Tibetan border.

Just outside Leh (in Ladakh) in the Choglamsar Camps, buildings with passive solar heating transformed the lives of many Tibetan refugees last winter. As people here cannot afford to heat their homes, these are places where mothers, babies and old people can gather to keep warm. Through the winter of 1994-95 (with lowest recorded temperatures ever of 40°C), there was a 100% reduction in pneumonia amongst the 1,400 people of Agling Camp!
