They had been doing awareness campaigns of the same because the issue was getting out of hand. However, with the government intervening is will be easier to create awareness and there will be less resources wastage on this one issue. It was the burden of the healthcare delivery system because they were using a lot of resources to treat these patients, accommodate the children that had been affected and needed admission and create awareness campaigns. Normally, the health care delivery system deals with a lot of things and the resources in most cases are scarce. In order to ensure that a community is healthy, a lot is done and a lot is needed to see to it that everyone prevents themselves and takes precaution (Walker, 2016). Therefore, when the government, the local residents and administration helps to prevent more lead poisoning, it will reduce the resources that the healthcare system spend on this issue, and also the workload that the healthcare currently has.
