Resumen:

An air pollution health risk assessment (AP-HRA) estimates the health impact to be expected from measures
that affect air quality, in different socioeconomic, environmental, and policy circumstances. As
such, it is an important tool for informing public policy decisions. This document introduces the concept
of AP-HRA, describes in broad terms how the health risks of outdoor air pollution and its sources are
estimated, and gives an overview of the general principles for the proper conduct of an AP-HRA for
various scenarios and purposes. The information is aimed at a broad audience of readers who do not
need to know how to apply the tools, but seek a general understanding of the concepts, scope and
principles of AP-HRA.
