International Lead Poisoning Awareness Week 2017

Lead paint is a major source of potential lead poisoning for young children. The International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week of Action, co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UN Environment, was established to raise awareness of the widespread availability of lead paint. IPEN and Partners have taken part in awareness-raising activities and other actions during the Week of Action since 2013. Click here for more information about IPEN's previous activities, and information about some of the activities carried out by IPEN Participating Organizations during the 2017 Week of Action will shortly be posted below.
