Mistral project

Flanders in Belgium

Elevated blood pressure (BP) in early life may lead to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in later life. Air pollution exposure has been associated with increased BP in adults and children, but the contribution of prenatal air pollution exposure has rarely been assessed. In addition, we are not aware of any study on neonatal BP and maternal residential traffic and land use indicators during pregnancy.

The case study in Flanders will be coordinated by the University of Hasselt. Professor, Tim Narrow, will lead the study as member of the Hasselt University.
