Air Quality Health Index

Why is this important?

Outdoor air quality can impact children’s health. Infants and young children are at higher risk of health problems when exposed to air pollution. Being aware of day-to-day air quality conditions and tailoring activities accordingly can help reduce children’s exposure to air pollution. The Air Quality Health Index or "AQHI" is a scale designed to help you understand what the air quality around you means to your health. It also provides advice on how you can improve the quality of the air you breathe.
