The International Week of action on Prevention of Lead Poisoning (20th – 26th October, 2013)

The International Week of Action on Prevention of Lead Poisoning (October 20th - 26th 2013) is intended to address the lack of awareness about lead poisoning emanating from lead based paints. The event is a joint voluntary collaborative plan, of the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint (GAELP) undertaken by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

It focuses and catalyzes the efforts of a diverse range of stakeholders such as Governments, Clinical and Public Health Professionals, Researchers among others to achieve international goals to prevent children's exposure to lead and minimize occupational exposures to lead paint. The GAELP aims at raising awareness about lead poisoning by highlighting countries’ and partners' efforts in preventing childhood lead poisoning, and urge further action to eliminate lead based paints.

The Global data for lead in new enamel decorative paints makes reference on Kenya's report on house hold paints carried out by (ilima), an NGO in Nairobi, September 2012. During this week of action UNEP in collaboration with IPEN will launch a report based on “Lead in Enamel Decorative Paints - National Paint Testing Results”.

There will be parallel launches of the report in UNEP, Nairobi and Geneva on Tuesday 22 October 2013, during the week.
