Abstract: Air Quality; both indoor and ambient is a worldwide concern. It estimated by The World Health Organisation that Air pollution caused up to 7 million premature deaths every year owing to mainly heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases and cancers.1 Many developed and developing countries such as USA and China are investing heavily in controlling and fighting Air Pollution. However, there seem to be little sign of concern in African countries on Air Quality issues. There is simply strong evidence in study papers that air pollution in Africa has reached worrisome levels and that this problem is being ignored by authorities in many corners of the continent. Results of Studies carried out all over Africa show unprecedented levels of Pollutants; PM2.5, PM10, NOx, SO2, CO2 and many others in the air. The studies also show catastrophic effects of such pollution on health and the socio-economic lives of people. As the countries in Africa are making effort to grow their Economies, the Air Pollution concerns are similarly increasing. This paper summarizes significant finding in literature on the air quality in Africa; including air pollutants, related sources, levels and concertation, mitigation measures and potential health effects. There are also recommendation that may help to change present picture of Air Quality management in Africa.
