Household interventions for preventing domestic lead exposure in children

Lead poisoning at high levels can cause anaemia, multi‐organ damage, seizures, coma and death in children. At chronic low levels it can lead to cognitive, psychological and neurobehavioural impairment. Researchers have studied many different educational and environmental household interventions to prevent lead exposure in children, such as parental education, removal of lead dust or home remediation work. However, it is not clear if and to what extent these interventions work in preventing lead exposure in children.
