In August, 2017, the Health Impact Project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Pew Charitable Trusts, released a seminal report: Ten Policies to Prevent and Respond to Childhood Lead Exposure. The Trust for America’s Health, National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH), Urban Institute, Altarum Institute, Child Trends and many researchers and partners contributed to the report.
As part of the project, TFAH worked with the Health Impact Project to create six briefs that further amplify the report’s findings and recommendations:
- Recommendations to Prevent and Mitigate the Effects of Lead Poisoning (Spanish Language Version)
- Drinking Water Lead Prevention Brief for Policymakers and Advocates
- Homes and Lead Paint Prevention Brief for Policymakers and Advocates
- Policy Brief for Federal Policymakers, Leaders and Advocates
- Policy Brief for State, Policymakers, Leaders and Advocates
- Policy Brief for Local Policymakers, Leaders and Advocates
TFAH and NCHH also worked with Pew, RWJF and local advocates and officials to put together several case studies about lead poisoning and prevention initiatives, accessible here.
