ICANN's communication says:

"Today we would like to share ICCAN’s first review exploring the relationship between aviation noise and people’s health.

Disturbance from aviation noise is an inherently personal experience. Having engaged with many people and communities living with it, we know the effects can be substantial and may have a detrimental impact on people’s quality of life, health and wellbeing.

For such an important issue, there is limited good evidence on just how aviation noise impacts someone’s quality of life, health and wellbeing. ICCAN commissioned the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) to bring together previous reviews examining the existing evidence and provide an update to a rapidly developing subject area.

The review, ‘Aviation noise and public health: rapid evidence assessment’, highlights that there is a real scarcity of high-quality evidence around the links between aviation noise and health. We want to help build the evidence base so that we can work towards having a more complete picture about how noise truly affects people’s health and wellbeing.

A note setting out the key findings and ICCAN’s next steps has been produced to accompany the review.

Please share this with anyone in your organisation that would find it of interest. You can access the NatCen report and accompanying ICCAN note here
