Children Tested

Iowa requires all children to be tested at least once before the age of six. Evaluating blood lead testing results on an annual basis contributes to the overall understanding of the impact and burden of lead poisoning in Iowa, and can also be helpful for healthcare providers and local public health agencies for program assessment and improvement.
