Summary
"Join our coalition of government, private sector, and non-government partners in launching a new global initiative focused on reducing morbidity and mortality associated with lead exposure from drinking water. Lead in drinking water has been detected in over 100 countries, affects a significant proportion of the world's population and is especially concerning for pregnant women and young children.
