Abstract:- This study is to evaluate the effect of air conditioning type on indoor air quality (IAQ) of healthcare facilities. The study was conducted by visiting several hospitals in Khartoum that use different type of air conditioning system. The tools used for data collection include questionnaire, personal communication as well as individual observation during the visiting. The result showed that the indoor air quality depends on the used air conditioning system. Hence good ventilation can be provided by choosing the appropriate air conditioning type.
