New Report! A Breath of Fresh Air: Addressing Climate Change and Air Pollution Together for Health

October 18, 2016 UK Health Alliance on Climate Change

The latest report from the UK Health Alliance, A Breath of Fresh Air, makes the case for much more integrated strategies to address air pollution and climate change.

It argues that approaches to addressing both challenges simultaneously will create much greater health benefits and cost-savings than strategies which address them separately.

Both air pollution and climate change pose serious risks to public health in the UK, but a joined-up approach to tackling them can reap enormous benefits.  This is particularly true for the most vulnerable members of society, and can help cut the associated health burden and costs to the NHS.
