Every winter there are days when Delhi’s air quality deteriorates to dangerous levels due to stubble fires, emissions from Diwali crackers and local springs in the capital. Cold temperatures and no wind make the situation even worse as pollutants stay close to the surface, slowing particle diffusion. Health officials said these pollution centers, like government fever clinics, will have dedicated staff and resources and that the pilot project will also help collect data on the health hazards of pollution among Delhi residents.
Another official said pollution clinics were likely to open at the largest government hospitals, Lok Nayak and Guru Teg Bahadur, before expanding to other government facilities. “Employees will be trained and resources will be made available in case the cause of illness or allergy is traced back to increased air pollution.
The overall initiative of the dedicated clinics on pollution is in line with the Center’s National Program on Climate Change and Human Health (NPCCHH) Health Adaptation Action Plan ( (similar to the Thermal Action Plan). Identify at-risk populations and pollution hotspots to control health complications resulting from poor air quality, especially in winter.
