for mobilizing to deliver health impact analyses for air quality and climate decisions  
The Health Effects Institute is responsible for the analytics behind the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) report. This grant will take that methodology and apply it to the current and projected coal fleet in China, India, and eastern Europe, at the national and provincial level. This is a major public health study, which will be conducted with partners in the major research universities of China, India, and Poland. The report seeks to connect specific coal plants to current health and mortality issues. In China, the goal is to influence the thirteenth Five-Year Plan. In India, the goal is to raise the issue of air pollution connected to coal, and create space for clean energy campaigners to promote alternatives.
