The incidence of hospitalizations due to cardiovascular (HACVD) and respiratory diseases (HARD) associated with PM10 was assessed with AirQ2.2.3. Daily PM10 data were used to this purpose. The results showed that 8.2% (95% CI: 5.6-11.4%), 7.2% (95% CI: 4.9-10.1%), and 4.4% (95% CI: 3.0-6.3%) of HACVD and 7.3% (95% CI: 4.5-10%), 6.4 (95% CI: 4.0-8.8%), and 3.9% (95% CI: 2.4-5.4%) of HACVD in the cities of Ahvaz, Khorramabad and Ilam were attributed to PM10, respectively. Governmental authorities need to act to control the dust hazard by spreading mulch and developing green space using vegetation amenable to the local climate.
