A Toxics-Free Future

Awareness-raising on lead paint poisoning in Tanzania

Through research, AGENDA learned about existing regulations (voluntary and compulsory) concerning lead in paints in Tanzania and collaborated with regulators to produce materials based on this information. Additionally, AGENDA used brochures, news articles, and a previous project report to inform paint producers, distributors, and consumers about the human and environmental hazards from leaded paint and leaded paint products. This project resulted in the opportunity for more effective enforcement of existing regulation through enhanced collaboration between two specific health-focused governmental bodies.
