In brief: Testing

The normal screening done in this country usually just looks at the hemoglobin level, since it is suppressed by lead poisoning.
This is an indirect test and available anywhere they have health care services.A serum lead test is more specific for lead exposure and also readily available through most labs.

In brief: Blood test

I'm sure they have labs that can do a lead test.
It is a very simple blood test.
