Emergency workers and clean-up crew are among 9/11 responders still suffering significant health issues 20 years after the terrorist attacks. More than 91,000 workers and volunteers were exposed to a range of hazards during the rescue, recovery and clean-up operations. By March 2021, some 80,785 of these responders had enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Program, which was set up after the attacks to monitor their health and treat them. Now our published research, which is based on examining these health records, shows the range of physical and mental health issues responders still face.
