This Case Study aims to address air pollution and particulate matter (PM) as its widespread form as a major environmental risk factor for human health.



The Case Study 2 focuses on the adverse health effects of air pollution in South Africa, particularly concerning particulate matter. By analyzing comprehensive datasets containing mortality, diseases, air quality, and environmental records, this case study aims to understand the relationship between air pollution exposure and various health outcomes, including cardiovascular and respiratory diseases and mortality.

Through innovative approaches such as using satellite data analysis and modeling, the project seeks to characterize residential air pollution and identify areas with poor air quality, especially targeting vulnerable populations such as children under 5 years old. Additionally, the case study aims to contribute to the improvement of ambient air quality standards and provide data-driven evidence to inform policy decisions aimed at mitigating the health risks associated with air pollution in South Africa.
