Objectives

Objectives

  • To rank health risks due to environmental stressors in Finland using:

    • Mortality

    • DALYs

  • Selection criterias for environmental stressors

    • Public health

    • Public concern

    • High individual risk (occupational exposures)

    • Economical importance

  • Results comparable with other countries


Nature of data used

Nature of data used

  • Epidemiological

    • Used when data is available

  • Toxicological

    • Used for exposures without sufficient epidemiologial data

  • Registery data

    • Used to include reference health issues such as accidents


Main outcomes

Main outcomes

  • A national seminar (in Helsinki, Oct 13th 2009)
