November 2015 saw the Asthma Society of Ireland launch our 2015 Clean Air Campaign in University College Cork. For the first time ever the Society has broadened its focus beyond the dangers of smoky coal burning to examining both air quality and monitoring practices in Ireland.
Air pollution is often considered as an environmental issue, rather than a health matter, when in fact over 400,000 Europeans die prematurely from the effects of air pollution every year. This is 10 times the number that dies from road traffic accidents.
You can help us in many different ways to create a better air for us all. Get involved!
