Pollution & Health: A Progress Update of the 2017 Lancet Commission on Pollution and Health

Hosted by the NYU School of Global Public Health and the Global Alliance on Pollution and Health (GAHP)

The 2017 groundbreaking publication The Lancet by the Commission on Pollution and Health addressed the full health and economic costs of air, water and soil pollution. Through analyses of existing and emerging data, the Commission revealed pollution’s severe and underreported contribution to the Global Burden of Disease, the economic costs of pollution to low- and middle-income countries, and the costs of inaction. This seminal report, which received extensive global media coverage, brought pollution squarely into the international development agenda.
