Special Report 15: Health Effects of Outdoor Air Pollution in Developing Countries of Asia (May 2004)
Health Effects Institute

This first publication to come from the PAPA Program was undertaken to help inform the Clean Air Initiative for Asian Cities. This special report has identified and summarized more than 135 studies of air pollution and health conducted across Asia. In addition, it critically reviews for the first time a key subset of these studies: 28 studies of daily mortality. The report is a valuable resource for policy makers in Asia and beyond.
