The Health Effects Institute is an independent, nonprofit organization established in 1980 to be an authoritative and impartial source of high-quality science regarding the effects of air pollution on human health. Through nearly 300 research projects in the U.S., Europe, Asia and elsewhere, HEI has advanced scientific knowledge on a range of air pollution issues relevant to regulatory and other actions to improve air quality.



HEI’s scientific programs are, and have been, targeted to key issues in air quality policy discussions.
