Potential reduction in total annual premature deaths (central estimate and 95 % confidence interval (CI)) among people 30 years and over in 26 APHEIS cities

Abstract: The potential health benefits of reducing annual mean PM2.5 levels from the current observed values to 25, 20, 15 and 10 µg/m3 were estimated for the 26 European cities of the APHEIS network in 15 European countries, using well-established methods and published results of research on the effects of current air pollution on public health

Additional information

All other things being equal, policies to reduce PM2.5 to 15 µg/m3 would prevent three times more premature deaths in the cities than a reduction to 25 µg/m3, and reducing them to 10 µg/m3 to five times more than to 25 µg/m3
