Rwanda: Asbestos Roofs Banned Because They Are a Health Hazard

Rwanda: Asbestos Roofs Banned Because They Are a Health Hazard - The ministry of infrastructure has kicked off a campaign for the removal of all roofs made of asbestos material, since it poses a health hazard. Asbestos has been banned in many countries due to its contribution to lung disease, especially cancer. Nevertheless, in Rwanda the hazardous material can still be found in many buildings, the owners of which are often ignorant of the health risks. [AA Construction]
