« Every Breath Can Do Damage: The Urgency of Air Pollution Action »

Vital Strategies and NCD Alliance are pleased to invite you to a World Health Assembly side event to highlight the critical importance of tackling air pollution as part of the global NCD response.

Ninety percent of the global population breathes unhealthy air. The international health community must take quick action against air pollution as a leading risk factor for death and disease, and engage in active and strategic advocacy for clean air.

The event will focus on the urgent need to implement proven, cost-effective interventions to reduce air pollution. A guided discussion will look at the impact of air pollution on health, economies and development, while addressing how to promote evidence-based policies and make the investment case for reducing air pollution.
