Health benefits of air pollution mitigation: A comparative assessment of policies for high (India) and low (Australia) exposure regions

Air pollution is the leading environmental cause of mortality and morbidity in the world. Despite significant progress in air pollution epidemiology, uncertainty in estimating the burden remains large, especially in data poor countries like India. Moreover, whether the relative burden of PM2.5 expos...
