Pure Earth is completing a report on chemical contamination, which may be used as a foundation document for future Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP) work with the government.

The HPAP is a collaborative process that aims to help governments:

  • Identify, evaluate and prioritize the main existing contamination problems based on health
    impacts.
  • Establish pollution as a priority action within the agendas of the various sectors of
    government.
  • Define and promote specific interventions to reduce exposure to pollutants and the
    associated burden of disease.
