Clean Air for Health

Every year nearly 400,000 Europeans die prematurely from air pollution, affecting those from disadvantaged backgrounds the most.  EPHA calls on policy-makers and politicians at international, European, national and city level to tackle the systemic causes of this global public health challenge; to mitigate the climate crisis; and contribute to a post-COVID-19 healthy recovery.
