  • Abstract:

    The World Health Organization (WHO) recognises that environmental pollution is a major cause of global disease, death and disabilities with a toll greater than that caused by HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. About 94% of pollution-related deaths occur in low-income and lower middle income countries; for example, childhood pneumonia and diarrhoeal diseases are directly linked to environmental pollution.
