View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractIn May 2014, the WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a technical meeting to discuss the evidence for air pollution health effects and propose expert advice on the best options and methods to estimate health risks from air pollution and its sources. The workshop proposed an overview of available indoor and outdoor air pollution health risk assessment methods and tools and identified general principles as well as appropriate methods and tools for conducting air pollution health risk assessment for various scenarios and purposes. The meeting provided relevant advice to inform a variety of health risk assessment efforts at local, national and international scales.

Mudu, Pierpaolo; Terracini, Benedetto; Martuzzi, Marco (2014)In recent years, increasing attention has been focused on the health implications of large industrial establishments. Studying human health in areas with industrial contamination is complex. The aim of this book is to outline a framework for integrated assessment of the impacts of large industrial activities. The framework is supported by examples related to the adverse effects on environment and health of petrochemical industries, based on the results of a research project carried out in Sicily, southern Italy, by the WHO Regional Office ...
Health-related air quality indicators and their application in health impact assessment in HEGIS : report on a WHO Consultation, Sosnowiec, Poland, 21-23 November 1995 World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe (EUR/ICP/EHAZ 94 06/MT03, 1997)The evaluation of health risks to the population is associated with the information on exposures at an appropriate level of aggregation to the various air pollutants. It requires the assessment of their actual concentration levels in the air over time, the number of people exposed, including sensitive groups, and knowledge of the quantitative relationship between exposure and health effects. This means that during the whole process of environmental health impact assessment, the quality, reliability and consistency of the collected information ...
