The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) was established for the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of lead poisoning, including the elimination of sources of poisoning through research and educational, epidemiologic, and clinical activities as may be necessary. CLPPP provides a range of both primary and secondary prevention services to the children of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, their families and others with an interest in the prevention of lead poisoning. In order to accomplish the fundamental goals of identifying lead poisoned children and ensuring that they receive medical and environmental services as well as preventing further cases of lead poisoning, CLPPP has developed linkages with a wide array of professionals and programs that provide services to children. CLPPP also provides coordinated and comprehensive nursing case management.
