Public Health England (PHE) raises public awareness of the impacts of indoor air pollution by supporting activities that aim to change behaviour, such as the annual Clean Air Day, and is working with health partners, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, World Health Organization and Allergy UK, to improve the evidence on the health impacts of poor indoor air quality which will enhance advice to the public. PHE also promotes awareness about carbon monoxide through the use of blog posts, press releases and social media updates.
