Interventions in LICs and LMICs to Improve Air Quality and/or Mitigate its Impacts - Summary
MetadataShow full item record
This summary is based on a rapid review that surveyed evidence on air quality interventions in low-income (LICs) and lower-middle-income (LMICs) to improve air quality and/or mitigate its impacts. The review found limited evidence derived from such countries and instead draws on evidence from reviews and compilations compiled by bodies such as Public Health England (PHE) and the World Health Organization (WHO). In particular, the review draws heavily on two key sources of information; a review commissioned by the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) to review the evidence for practical interventions to reduce harm from outdoor air pollution and WHO guidance on interventions to address indoor and outdoor air pollution.
