The health impacts of environmental noise are a growing concern. Documented health effects of environmental noise include cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, sleep disturbance, tinnitus, and annoyance. The environmental burden of disease methodology, based on exposure–response relationship, exposure distribution, background prevalence of disease and disability weights of the outcome, can be applied to quantify, monitor and benchmark the burden of noise in terms of disability-adjusted life-years.
Our next burden-eu webinar will provide novel insights into the burden of noise, including new burden estimates generated by the European Environment Agency and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
