Abstract: Most of the evidence regarding the association between air pollution and health comes from studies in the USA. Nevertheless, air pollution has become a concern also for local authorities of Latin-American cities and Bogotá, Colombia is no exception. This paper will develop a model to define a concentration-response function between three of the most important air pollutants in Bogotá and the daily respiratory hospital admission counts in the city during the year of 1998. This article pretends to further work on this area by giving the first step towards a more detailed estimation of the costs of air pollution in Bogotá
