The asbestos epidemic is far from over. WHO estimates that over 107,000 people die each year from asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma and asbestosis resulting from exposure at work.
The Consensus Report: Asbestos, Asbestosis, and Cancer: Helsinki Criteria for Diagnosis and Attribution 2014 summarizes the current, up-to-date information on the methods for managing and eliminating asbestos-related diseases.

The newly updated Helsinki Criteria are recommended for use in programs and practices for the detection, diagnosis and attribution of asbestos-related diseases.
