WP6 - Environmental Burden of Childhood Disease

Led by  John Wright
Collaborating BTHFT, CREAL, Inserm, NIPH, UoC, VDU, VGGM

Burden of disease estimates in Europe are obtained by integrating exposure data and exposure-response data. Various “holistic” models will be developed to capture observed complexity and to integrate risk and benefits. For example, encouraging children to walk or cycle to school to improve physical and mental health; at the same time, they are prone to adverse health effects due to longer duration of exposure to air pollutants, higher risks of accidents, etc. Do the overall benefits outweigh these risks and what should policy makers do to improve these conditions of active transportation?
