Identifying the Source of Lead Contamination in Urban Neighborhoods in the Philippines
Identifying the sources of lead contamination is the first step in preventing exposures in people. Your contribution will help conduct a comprehensive residential lead hazard evaluation in specified neighborhoods in various cities in the Philippines.
This lead evaluation will include:
A. Collecting and analyzing blood lead levels from all household residents within the homes identified.
B. If any member of the home (child or adult) has elevated lead levels we will conduct a thorough lead hazard assessment and household survey.
C. We will conduct a comprehensive community-wide industrial lead source assessment.
D. Solutions to prevent exposure to people will be developed based on the results of these studies.
