Primary Air Care or PAC is a package of interventions to reduce harmful emissions. PAC acts against the sources of emissions to reduce greenhouse gases, criteria air pollutants, and other pollutants that contribute to climate change, and that harm ecosystems and human health. In contrast to other climate change initiatives, PAC focuses on human health outcomes to both reduce the impact on vulnerable populations and promote health equity, and to mobilize action to reduce all emissions through increased awareness and understanding of health impacts.
