This month, the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) is featured in the latest issue of The Globe, the newsletter of the Department of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

The article highlights not only the unit’s overall capacity-building activities in low- and middle-income countries and the training of trauma care professionals as it relates to the Road Safety in 10 Countries project (RS-10) but also features new grants the unit is working on in the global field of injury prevention.  One such grant is the Chronic Consequences of Trauma, Injuries and Disability (Chronic TRIAD), an NIH award that will strengthen work on the long-term health and economic consequences of injury and disability in Uganda.

The piece also outlines new courses in injury prevention and a seven-module on-line certificate program in road traffic injury prevention and control that will be available this spring, all at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
