WHO is developing guidelines on the management of lead poisoning. A key part of the management of moderate to severe lead poisoning is the use of chelation therapy. DUK will assist WHO grading the quality of evidence (using GRADE). In addition, a systematic evidence review is planned on the use of nutritional enhancements in lead poisoning for which the input of a GRADE expert will be required.
