The association between maternal and childhood NO2 and PM2.5 exposure and health and development of Australian children.


In 2016/2017, mothers from the 1973-78 ALSWH cohort were invited to participate in  the Mothers and their Children’s Health (MatCH) study to complete a survey about their children (aged under 13 years). Recently, air pollution exposure estimates (nitrogen dioxide and fine particulate matter) have been linked to geocoded residential addresses of ALSWH participants. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to understand the health impact of decade long air pollution exposures experienced first-hand by mothers on the generation that follows as well as how environment contributes to disease risk in their children.
