Looks in detail at the evidence linking long-term exposure to air pollutants and effects on mortality. In doing this we have assessed the possible effects of a range of factors that may affect or confound the reported associations. Whilst in
A report by the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) on the effects of particulate air pollution on mortality in the UK. This report deals with answering what, at first glance, appear to be relatively simple questions regarding
This interim guidance statement is from the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP). COMEAP has published its final report on the link between long-term average concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and mortality.
This statement by the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) updates earlier advice (2009 and 2010 reports) on how to estimate mortality associated with long-term average concentrations of particulate air pollution.
This report by the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) recommends how to estimate the benefits of reducing concentrations of nitrogen dioxide in outdoor air and calculates the mortality burden of current levels of air pollution.
The association between air pollution and poor health has been well documented. However, it cannot be presumed that interventions leading to a reduction in air pollution will lead to health improvements. There are relatively few studies examining this association, especially
Results of an analysis of how countries can advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by working through the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme (THE PEP). This report highlights how transport impacts on the environment and health.
