New seed grant for air pollution in large urban areas in Vietnam


Our Air Pollution Research team has just been awarded a seed grant to conduct a health impact assessment for air pollution in large urban areas in Vietnam.

Researchers from the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, the University of Sydney, Hanoi University of Public Health, University of Engineering and Technology, and the Bach Mai Hospital will work together to:
- Develop models to estimate the spatial distribution of air pollutant concentrations,
- Estimate premature mortality due to current ambient air pollutant exposure, and
- Quantify the potential health benefits due to policy relevant air pollution emissions control scenarios.

This seed grant is funded by the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) at the University of Sydney.
