Abstract

International agency for research on cancer (IARC) has defined outdoor air pollution as a mixture and particulate matter specifically as carcinogenic to humans (IARC Group 1). Outdoor air pollution is a combination of different pollutants result from natural and man-made sources. This study aimed to evaluate exposure to PM2.5 and its effects on human health in north-west of Iran during 2015 to 2016 using AirQ model. The data were taken from online monitoring stations in Urmia city and total mortality estimated using AirQ model. The annual mean of PM2.5 concentrations was 23 μg/m3, which was too higher than 10 μg/m3 recommended by world health organization (WHO) guideline. The total cases for mortality in central relative risk 1.015 were found 143 cases. The main sources of PM were the combustion of fossil fuel. The salty dust storms caused by climate change and drying Urmia Lake. Therefore, increasing green space and extensive activities such as desertification are need to control this phenomenon that is extremely challenging.
