Global Asbestos Awareness Week!

Ban Asbestos Network of India (BANI) calls on concerned Indians and Indian institutions to join together for Global Asbestos Awareness Week from April 1st – April 7th.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported “in 2004, asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis from occupational exposures resulted in 107,000 deaths and 1,523,000 DALYs.

Disability-adjusted life year (DALY) is defined as the measure of overall disease burden expressed as the number of years lost due to ill-health, disability or early death.

But these aren’t just numbers; these are individuals, families, and friends who have been impacted by preventable deadly diseases.
