Clean Air Day 2022

The Radiation, Chemicals and Environmental Hazards Directorate of the UK Health Security Agency has published Issue 28 of the Chemical Hazards and Poisons Report to coincide with national Clean Air Day. The theme of this issue is 'Reducing health harms associated with air pollution' and includes a guest article on the role of health professionals by Global Action Plan, organisers of Clean Air Day.

Our work to increase evidence base is supported by our research partnerships with leading universities to deliver two National Institute of Health and Social Care (NIHR) Health Protection Research Units (HPRUs) in Environmental Exposures and Health providing research on the health effects associated with exposure to environmental pollutants complemented by the Developmental Award in Environmental Exposures and Health’s research on health effects from exposures in the built environment.
