Today, one in three of the world’s children have enough lead in their blood to cause permanent brain damage, yet many countries lack systems and technical capacity to effectively identify, monitor, treat or reduce childhood lead exposure. By partnering with country-level stakeholders to strengthen national health care systems, train health professionals, and educate parents, teachers and schoolchildren, this comprehensive program will enable children to have better opportunity to reach their full potential.
