LEAD is a naturally occurring element that has been used in a wide variety of products including plumbing materials, gasoline, and paint.

Although lead-based paint has been banned for consumer use, homes and apartments built before 1978 may have peeling or chipping lead-based paint. Lead is particularly dangerous to children under six years old; it can cause delayed growth, behavioral problems, hearing loss, and brain damage.

Through a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the City of Phoenix operates Lead Safe Phoenix. This no cost program aims to reduce childhood lead poisoning by creating lead-safe housing. This program also helps residents address minor health hazards in their homes.

​​      National Public Health Week  ​      

As we look toward the 26th anniversary ​​of NPHW, April 5-11, we know public health needs public support, now more than ever. Each day of NPHW will focus on a different piece of the bridges that connect us -- or keep us apart. We hope that, each day, you'll see how you fit into building stronger, healthier communities.

We may be physically distant from each o​​ther, but now it's more important than ever to come together.
