Director of Health, Environment, and Policy, Kevin Cromar, was recently appointed to the WHO Global Air Pollution and Health Technical Advisory Group. This expert body advises the WHO on methodologies to assess exposures and disease burdens attributable to outdoor air pollution. The group also provides reviews and evaluations of cost-effective policies and interventions to reduce these risks and to assess climate-mitigation policies that also affect ambient air pollution. Cromar will serve a two-year term, along with other experts selected from around the world.
One example of a work product informed by the work of the Technical Advisory Group is the Sustainable Development Goal 3.9.1, Mortality Rate Attributed to Ambient Air Pollution.
