Control of Lead Poisoning in Children. (Pre-Publication Draft).
Public Health Service (DHEW), Washington, DC. Bureau of Community Environmental Management.
This document presents information about aspects of the lead pollution problem that relate to children, suggests a community action program for controlling lead hazards, estimates the staff and other costs involved in developing such a program, and tells how to synthesize the program components for maximum effectiveness. The seven parts of the document concern themselves with various aspects of the problem: (1) epidemiology, etiology, clinical signs and symptoms of lead poisoning; (2) planning a city program for lead control; (3) community awareness and education; (4) casefinding to identify children with increased lead intake; (5) guidelines for development and enactment of lead control legislation; (6) financing a lead-control program; and (7) identification and management of environmental lead sources in the residential neighborhood. Appendix I gives an alternate approach to aspect (7). Appendix II contains work sheets for environmental evaluation from United States census data, and census tracts. (Author/NH)
