The week of action aims to draw attention to the health impacts of lead exposure, highlight efforts by countries and partners to prevent childhood lead exposure, and accelerate efforts to phase out the use of lead in paint.
This year’s week of action will focus on children’s environmental health in relation to lead exposure.
The Week is an initiative of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint (Lead Paint Alliance), which is jointly led by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and World Health Organization (WHO). It takes place annually in October.
