  • Represents a sophisticated method for quantifying the burden of disease on a national level
  • First study ever using computer-based model to estimate national burden of disease for a wide range of environmental health risks
  • Innovative model allows officials to explore which measures for controlling environmental pollution will lead to the greatest improvements in public
  • Model helps design optimal programs for reducing the environmental burden of disease Fully documents comprehensive, national-level environmental burden of disease assessment​

This publication characterizes the environmental burden of disease in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), measured by the excess number of deaths and illnesses in the population due to exposure to environmental hazards. The robust methods used in this risk analysis can be applied to any country or region. This publication documents the systematic, multi-step process used to identify environmental priorities and the detailed methods used to quantify the disease burden attributable to each risk. Based on the results of the burden of disease assessment, the publication summarizes the subsequent steps that are recommended to further reduce the burden of disease resulting from various environmental risk factors.
