Lead Poisoning Prevention Stories Case Studies
In August 2017, the Health Impact Project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the Pew Charitable Trusts released 10 Policies to Prevent and Respond to Childhood Lead Exposure. The Trust for America’s Health (TFAH), NCHH, Urban Institute, Altarum, Child Trends, and many researchers and partners contributed to the 10 Policies report. TFAH and NCHH worked with Pew, RWJF, and local advocates and officials to publish a suite of case studies about lead poisoning and prevention initiatives around the country. The case studies do not attempt to capture everything a location is doing with respect to lead but aim to highlight some of the important work. The case studies were originally published in October 2017 as pages on TFAH’s website.
