Pure Earth is working to upgrade the TSIP (Toxic Sites Identification Program) database and facilitate a national Health and Pollution Action Plan (HPAP) with the government of Tanzania. The HPAP will focus on lead, pesticides, mercury and other toxins. Pure Earth will provide continued support for implementation of recommended policies and programs, and for proposal drafting after the reports are validated.

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.
