In order to review air pollution effects on health, the Commission and the WHO Regional Office for Europe  performed a project called "Systematic review of health aspects of air quality in Europe".

The review gives answers to policy relevant health questions formulated by the Commission in consultation with European stakeholders in the CAFE Steering Group.

In addition to these reports the Joint task force of the UNECE and WHO Task Force on Health has given important advice to the health impact assessment performed with integrated assessment models. The reports of the Task Force meeetings to the Convention Working group on effects with most relevance for the CAFE program are 2003, 2004 and 2005 (to appear soon).
