Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
One of the ten great recent public health achievements in the U.S. has been noted to be childhood lead poisoning prevention and control, mostly due to the removal of lead from paint and fuel. While children from all geographic, social and economic levels can be affected, children living in poverty and in older, poorly maintained homes have higher exposure to lead.
Funding to support the collection, analysis and sharing of surveillance data and other lead-related information with its partners and the public has been used to survey lead data surveillance users. This publication describes the results from our survey and how they will be used to help plan surveillance and communication activities during the next two years.
