HEI has launched its Strategic Plan for Understanding the Health Effects of Air Pollution for the coming five years, guiding HEI’s direction based on extensive input from sponsors, the scientific community, environmental organizations, and others. The Plan seeks to produce timely and credible science to inform key decisions with one overarching theme: informing decisions on air quality and on climate-driven technology for 2015-2020…and beyond. The four core program elements address:
(1) the continuing challenges of multipollutant science;
(2) improving science for decisions through accountability and transparency;
(3) assessing emerging fuels and technologies; and
(4) addressing global health issues.
