The LIFE MED-HISS project is a demonstration project involving partners in Spain, France, Italy and Slovenia. Its main objectives are: To update and develop EU environmental policy and legislation with improved data on the adverse health effect of air pollution (PM10, PM2.5, NO2 and O3); To consolidate the knowledge base for the development, assessment, monitoring and evaluation of environmental policy and legislation, by setting up a European surveillance system of long term effects of air pollution; To assess the feasibility of the adopted approach in other European countries. Expected results: An evaluation of the long term effects of PM10, PM2.5, NO2 and O3 on mortality and hospitalisation, considering natural causes, cancers, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and asthma; An evaluation of the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) of air pollution in four EU countries – Italy, France, Slovenia and Spain (Catalonia); The creation of guidelines, a database and a report describing different exposure assessment experiences in the four European countries, with an assessment of inter-country variations; An evaluation of the feasibility of a simplified hybrid approach for air pollution exposure estimation, which could be used in future epidemiological studies.
