  • The global environment is changing rapidly, partly in response to economic globalization. These global changes are clearly evident at the local level, even in the quality of air that people breath. In some high income countries air quality has been improving, due to a combination of de-industrialization, improved technologies and environmental regulation. However, advances in the science of epidemiology suggest that even air that would until recently have been considered ‘clean’ may contain pollutants that are hazardous to people’s health.

  • This book by Graham Thornicroft and Michele Tansella has a very clear objective: how better care could achieve better outcomes for people suffering from mental disorders. The preoccupation of the book is to derive bettermental health care from the best ethical, evidence-based and experience-based practices available. These two propositions, improving outcomes and framing interventions upon ethics, evidence and experience, are so clearly defined by the authors that this book represents a challenge to psychiatrists who sometimes forget the key link between ‘treatment’ and ‘care’.

  • The effect of HNC on air quality is measured using hourly air pollution records from monitoring stations. Pollution levels are compared before and after the restrictions for five major pollutants with levels in previous years acting as a comparison group to control for seasonal variation. The analysis controls for possible confounding factors by restricting the sample to a relatively narrow time window around the implementation of HNC and by using a regression discontinuity design. Across pollutants and specifications there is no evidence that the program has improved air quality.
