Improving outdoor air quality and health: review of interventions

Public Health England | March 2019 | Improving outdoor air quality and health: review of interventions

Public Health England (PHE) has reviewed the evidence for practical interventions to reduce harm from outdoor air pollution, stratified by their health and economic impact.

The Department of Health and Social Care commissioned 5 rapid evidence assessments that focused on vehicles and fuels, spatial planning, industry, agriculture, and people’s behaviour and sought evaluations that made direct links between actions and consequent health and health economic outcomes.

The report outlines principles for strategies and the future design and evaluation of interventions (Source: PHE).
