[Correspondence] Lancet Commission on pollution: action plans and human resource development in India

The Lancet Commission1 on pollution and health (Feb 3, p 462) is an important and timely assessment of global pollution and its health effects. It has highlighted the plight of vulnerable populations in low-income and middle-income countries and showed that about 92% of pollution-associated mortality occurs in these countries. The Commission makes it clear that the adverse health effects caused by pollution are preventable and suggests potential preventive measures and action plans. Bold, open-minded, and inclusive action plans at various levels, including political, are necessary for successful implementation of the strategies proposed in the Commission.
