Noise : report on a WHO coordination meeting of experts, Budapest, Hungary, 28-29 August 1997
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

Following the Helsinki Conference in June 1994, several programmes have been undertaken by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in reply to requests from Member States for help in implementing their policies on environment and health at both national and local levels. Among those programmes, the WHO pamphlet series for local authorities aims at providing local decision-makers with accessible and reliable information on various aspects of environment and health, so that they can quickly appraise their situation and take decisions more efficiently. The series is currently concerned with 10 themes, including noise, and under that theme 11 titles have been defined. The present meeting was organized, with the financial support of the Swiss Ministry of Health, to gather the authors of these documents together to design a clear table of contents, to ensure consistency and avoid duplication, and to take advantage of the experience of several specialists to make the pamphlets more comprehensive

Health risks of air pollution in Europe – HRAPIE project. Recommendations for concentration–response functions for cost–benefit analysis of particulate matter, ozone and nitrogen dioxide
( 2013 )
Abstract

This document presents recommendations for concentration–response functions for key pollutants to be included in cost–benefit analysis supporting the revision of the European Union’s air quality policy. It provides a response to a question posed by the European Commission in the framework of the WHO “Health risks of air pollution in Europe – HRAPIE” project. The essential background to this response was developed through a review of evidence on health aspects of air pollutants summarized by an earlier WHO project, “Review of evidence on health aspects of air pollution – REVIHAAP”. This report recommends concentration–response functions and associated background information for several mortality and morbidity effects associated with short- and long-term exposure to particulate matter, ozone and nitrogen dioxide. This publication arises from the HRAPIE project and was co-funded by the European Union.

World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 1997 )
Abstract

At a WHO consultation in 1996, senior government officials agreed that there was an urgent need to improve the range of policy tools for preventing and controlling environmental health hazards, and requested that WHO provide a guidance document on legal instruments for environmental health management. This document would be the sixth in a series aimed at strengthening various aspects of the environmental health services in Member States of the WHO European Region. At a meeting in Marseilles in 1997, the WHO Regional Office for Europe gathered several experts to determine the steps necessary to produce the guidance document. The participants agreed on the target audience, scope and purpose, chapter headings and subheadings, and timetable for completing the document. They also agreed that this project was important in aiding Member States to develop their environmental health services and national environmental health action plans
