The World Health Organization (WHO) is developing guidelines on the prevention of lead poisoning. A significant source of exposure to some populations is living in an environment in which soil is contaminated with lead. The aim of this project is to conduct a systematic evidence review for the effectiveness of remediation interventions for lead-contaminated soil to inform a possible recommendation.
