UKHSA and its predecessor organisations have a track record of research and scientific activities that support understanding and decision-making to the impacts of air pollution and other environmental hazards. Our research contributes towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and we are major contributors to Clean Air Day.
Clean Air Day 2022
More details on UKHSA’s role in tackling air pollution can be found in our blog ‘Clean Air Day – how UKHSA is tackling air pollution, and how you can help’
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.
