AbstractThis document presents recommendations for concentration–response functions for keypollutants to be included in cost–benefit analysis supporting the revision of the EuropeanUnion’s air quality policy. It provides a response to a question posed by the EuropeanCommission in the framework of the WHO “Health risks of air pollution in Europe – HRAPIE”project. The essential background to this response was developed through a review ofevidence on health aspects of air pollutants summarized by an earlier WHO project, “Reviewof evidence on health aspects of air pollution – REVIHAAP”. This report recommendsconcentration–response functions and associated background information for severalmortality and morbidity effects associated with short- and long-term exposure to particulatematter, ozone and nitrogen dioxide.This publication arises from the HRAPIE project and was co-funded by the European Union.
