- End Date:
The Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) at the Bloomberg School of Public Health will initiate one of the largest implementation research studies on drowning in low- and middle-income countries, thanks to a generous, multi-million dollar grant. The Saving of Lives from Drowning (SoLiD) in Bangladesh project aims to reduce the shocking number of childhood deaths due to drowning in the Southeast Asian country. This three-year study will allow researchers from JH-IIRU to examine how many lives can be saved using a package of interventions for children under five years old Bangladesh.
