Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program


The mission of the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is to protect the health and safety of the people of Connecticut.  We strive to prevent lead poisoning and promote wellness through education and a wide range of program activities that relate to childhood lead poisoning prevention. 


The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program is dedicated to reducing childhood lead poisoning through promoting mandatory blood lead testing, reporting, and surveillance, linking families to services and targeted interventions.


Childhood lead poisoning is one of the most common pediatric public health problems, yet it is 100% preventable. Parents, healthcare providers, and others can take important steps in preventing exposure.
