Health Action for Clean Air

Air pollution is the single biggest environmental health risk, causing 36,000 deaths each year in the UK. Air pollution is a public health crisis and requires a health sector approach.

Solutions to air pollution also have potential wider benefits to our health, as active travel reduces risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and mental ill health.


We have a range of resources and tools to help individuals and organisations across the health sector take action on air pollution.

"Together, the health sector can make a real difference to the lives of millions."
