The World Health Organization has issued new guidance to help health-care providers recognize and provide care to individuals which have had exposure to lead.  The release of the guidance coincides with International Lead Poisoning Prevention Week 2021.

The WHO Guideline for Clinical Management of Exposure to Lead recommends a  blood lead concentration of 5 micrograms per decilitre (μg/dL) as a trigger for a thorough review of the ways in which a person is being exposed to lead and for action to reduce or end this exposure.
