Get in touch with from AirQo


    AirQo was founded to close the gaps in air quality data in Uganda and across Sub-Saharan Africa. We continuously provide evidence of the magnitude and scale of air pollution by developing and deploying a network of low-cost air quality monitoring devices. By applying artificial intelligence, we derive insights from the data collected and share in real-time through our data sharing platforms.

    AirQo builds and deploys low-cost air quality monitors across urban areas and uses this data to model and forecast in areas which lack sensors. The AirQo app is available to access air quality data in Uganda.
