How air pollution is destroying our health

Air pollution kills 7 million people each year. Around the world, 9 out of 10 people breathe air that has been polluted by traffic emissions, industry, agriculture and waste incineration. About 3 billion people continue to use smoky, polluting stoves and fuels inside their homes for cooking and heating. 

This week, government leaders, intergovernmental organizations, scientists and advocates gathered at WHO’s headquarters in Geneva for the first Global Conference on Air Pollution and Health. The conference aims to raise awareness of this growing public health challenge and exchange information and tools on the health risks of air pollution and solutions to tackle this problem.
