Air and Health

The ISS takes part in several projects pertaining to the quality of air and its effects on health.

The  ISS takes part in a committee appointed by  the Minister of Health and the Minister for the Environment  in 2010, to collect information on the quality of air in Iceland and the effects of air pollution on health,  particularly of children and youngsters.

Iceland presents favorable conditions for such studies since extensive records of many relevant variables are available.

An interdisciplinary team of researchers has been brought together to collate information on air quality, weather, traffic, use of medicines, and comprehensive records of hospital admission due to heart-and /or respiratory diseases.
