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

May 19, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

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.

The Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP) convened a group of leading researchers to update the analysis using data from IHME’s 2019 Global Burden of Disease.  Authors will present the key findings of the paper which will publish on May 18, 2022 in The Lancet Planetary Health journal.

Event Speakers:

  • Dr. Jack Caravanos, Clinical Professor of Environmental Public Health Sciences, NYU School of Global Public Health
  • Richard Fuller, Lead author; Founder of Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP); President of Pure Earth
  • Rachael Kupka, Executive Director of Global Alliance on Health and Pollution (GAHP)
