K-HEALTHinAIR project: The growing need for air quality regulations and policies to mitigate indoor environments-associated risks

K-HEALTHinAIR project pills (K-pills) study different issues affecting Indoor Air Quality and potential solutions that can be applied to achieve healthier indoor spaces.

Although governments are increasingly adopting policies on air quality, they are mainly focused
outdoors. However, we spend 90% of our lives indoors. And while air quality outdoors is
monitored and regulated, that’s not the case indoors. The significance of indoor air quality is
frequently underestimated, despite it being one of the top five significant public health risks.
Surprisingly, the definition of “healthy” indoor air quality remains ambiguous, and state
governments often lack comprehensive regulations to address and manage indoor air quality.

 

Since research studies suggest that indoor air pollutant concentrations are increasing driven by
different factors such as the use of chemical substances in household products, inadequate
ventilation, warmer temperatures or increased humidity; and consequently, the indoor air quality
is being affected, the need for focus also on policies to improve indoor air quality is
becoming increasingly evident.

 

Read the whole new K-pill, by K-HEALTHinAIR project, focusing on the need for specific policies
and measures to enhance the quality of the air we breathe indoors here.
