Title: Unsigned letter to Dr. Carlos Cisneros (Minister of Health)
Author: Provincia de Jujuy; Ministerio de Salud
Description: This appears to be a letter but is not signed. It addresses the Minister of Health of the Province of Jujuy, Dr. Carlos Cisneros. It begins with general information about lead. A handwritten note in the margin reads, “Exact words from INQA” suggesting they were copied from another document from “Investigación Química Aplicada” (applied chemical investigation, or INQA). From there the letter describes Abra Pampa in general terms and also the history of lead contamination due to the Metal Huasi smelting foundry there. It mentions a study done in 1986 in the area, and another done in 2004. Some of the tests were blood tests for analysis of “ALA D.” The results of the 2004 study are summarized in tables. Another series of tests done in 2006 again tested children for lead poisoning. The letter goes on to describe, in a list, the timeline of the actions carried out by the Secretary of Environment of the province beginning in 2001. It contains, in summarized version, a large amount of information.
