Particulate air pollution is becoming a serious public health concern in urban cities of China. Association of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) and economic loss with air pollution-related health effects demand quantitative analysis for correctional measures in air quality. This study applies an epidemiology-based exposure–response function to obtain the quantitative estimate of health impact of particulate matter PM2.5 and PM10 across 190 cities of China during years 2014–2015. The… Expand
PM2.5-related health and economic loss assessment for 338 Chinese cities.
TLDR
This study highlights the discrepancies associated with the three commonly used methodologies applied for cause-specific mortality assessment and provides a measurable assessment of 338 cities of China to the provincial and national policymakers of China for intensifying their efforts on air quality improvement. Expand
Health burdens of ambient PM2.5 pollution across Chinese cities during 2006-2015.
TLDR
For large and medium/small cities, the effects of PM2.5 abatement on alleviating public health burdens were lower than those for megalopolises and metropolises; however, such large and mid-sized cities are at risk of increasing future pollution levels due to rapid development. Expand
Estimating premature mortality attributable to PM2.5 exposure and benefit of air pollution control policies in China for 2020.
TLDR
PM2.5-related long-term mortality of year 2015 in 161 cities of nine regions across China is reported using integrated exposure risk (IER) model and an estimate of the potential health benefits by year 2020 is provided, to help policy makers and pollution control authorities to further analyze cost and benefits of air pollution management programs in China.

Estimation of Human Exposure and Environment Burden of Disease Caused by PM2.5 Pollution in Beijing, China
TLDR
The results showed that PM2.5 personal exposure in south-eastern Beijing is relatively large, and ischemic heart disease (IHD) which was responsible for the most premature deaths in 2016. Expand
Burden of ischemic heart disease and stroke attributable to exposure to atmospheric PM2.5 in Hubei province, China
TLDR
The findings suggest that China needs proper air quality management measures to effectively reduce ambient PM2.5, especially for cities with heavy disease burden. Expand
Burden of lung cancer attributable to ambient fine particles and potential benefits from air quality improvements in Beijing, China: A population-based study.
TLDR
This study enriches epidemiological study, confirming the association between exposure to PM2.5 and lung cancer or its subtypes, and provides novel evidence for the notable reduction in lung cancer burden and medical expenditure savings that were achieved through air quality improvements in Beijing from 2014 to 2016. Expand
Spatiotemporal Assessment of PM2.5-Related Economic Losses from Health Impacts during 2014–2016 in China
TLDR
Overall, China experienced a downward trend in total economic losses over the three-year period, but the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei, Shandong Peninsula, Yangtze River Delta, and Chengdu-Chongqing regions experienced greater annual economic losses. Expand
Spatiotemporal assessment of health burden and economic losses attributable to short-term exposure to ground-level ozone during 2015–2018 in China
TLDR
Overall, the O3 attributed health and economic burden has begun to decline in China since 2017, however, highly polluted areas still face severe burden, and undeveloped areas suffer from high GDP losses. Expand
Attributable Risk and Economic Cost of Cardiovascular Hospital Admissions Due to Ambient Particulate Matter in Wuhan, China
TLDR
The results showed that a 10 µg/m3 increase in PM2.5 and PM10 concentrations at lag7 day, respectively, contributed to a 1.01% (95% confidence interval: 0.67–1.34) and 0.48% (0.26–0.70) increase in CVD hospitalizations. Expand
Effects of the Ambient Fine Particulate Matter on Public Awareness of Lung Cancer Risk in China: Evidence from the Internet-Based Big Data Platform
TLDR
Well-designed awareness campaigns are needed to enhance the general public’s awareness of the association of PM2.5 with lung cancer risk in China by analyzing the relationship between the daily PM21.5 concentration and searches for the term “lung cancer” on an Internet big data platform, Baidu.

Disability-adjusted life years and economic cost assessment of the health effects related to PM2.5 and PM10 pollution in Mumbai and Delhi, in India from 1991 to 2015
TLDR
The attributable number of mortality due to PM10 in Mumbai and Delhi increased to 32,014 and 48,651 in 2015 compared with 19,291 and 19,716 in year 1995 and a crucial presumption is that in 2030, PM10 levels would have to decline by 44% and 67% absolutely to maintain the same health outcomes in year 2015 levels.

Economic assessment of the health effects related to particulate matter pollution in 111 Chinese cities by using economic burden of disease analysis.
TLDR
Most large and medium-sized cities in China, which accounted for more than 70% gross domestic product (GDP) of China in 2004, were covered, and the total economic cost caused by PM(10) pollution was estimated as approximately USD 29,178.7 million. Expand
A health-based assessment of particulate air pollution in urban areas of Beijing in 2000–2004
TLDR
An energy policy and effective measures should be proposed to reduce particulate matter, especially PM2.5 pollution in Beijing to protect public health and the Beijing government also needs to cooperate with the other local governments to reduce high background level of particulate air pollution.
