Objectives The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, jointly with Public Health England, have developed a guideline on outdoor air pollution and its links to health. The guideline makes recommendations on local interventions that can help improve air quality and prevent a range of adverse health outcomes associated with road-trafﬁc-related air pollution. Methods The guideline was based on a rigorous assessment of the scientiﬁc evidence by an independent advisory com- mittee, with input from public health professionals and other professional groups. The process included systematics reviews of the literature, expert testimonies and stakeholder consultation. Results The guideline includes recommendations for local planning, clean air zones, measures to reduce emissions from public sector transport services, smooth driving and speed reduction, active travel, and awareness raising. Conclusions The guideline recommends taking a number of actions in combination, because multiple interventions, each producing a small beneﬁt, are likely to act cumulatively to produce signiﬁcant change. These actions are likely to bring multiple public health beneﬁts, in addition to air quality improvements. Keywords Air pollution Air quality Road trafﬁc Emissions Interventions Public health Introduction high blood pressure, smoking, and diet (HEI 2017). In England, 4.7% of adult
