International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week, 25 to 31 October 2020
20 October 2020
The eighth International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week (ILPPW) takes place from 25 to 31 October 2020. The manufacture and sale of lead paint is still permitted in over 60% of countries, presenting a continuing and future source of lead exposure for children and workers. The focus of this year’s week of action is on the need to accelerate progress towards the global phase-out of lead paint through regulatory and legal measures.
