LUDOK - Documentation and Database: Air pollution and Health

Since 1985 the documentation database of LUDOK: 'Dokumentationsstelle Luft und Gesundheit' selects, catalogues and summarizes relevant international research papers on the topic of air pollution and health outcomes on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of the Environment (BAFU: Bundesamt für Umwelt).

The aim is to provide an easy and publicly available access to a qualified library with a selection of relevant research papers in the field of air pollution and health research to authorities, researchers, organizations or interested persons in order to support evidence based policy making nationally and internationally.
