Road Safety in 10 Countries

Hanoi, Vietnam


Summary

The Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit is currently working with a consortium of partners to improve road safety in 10 low and middle-income countries around the world. Dubbed the Road Safety in 10 Countries project, the five-year initiative draws on support from Bloomberg Philanthropies and the World Health Organization to evaluate and implement road safety solutions where they are needed most. The Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit is responsible for the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the road safety interventions in all 10 countries, as well as the development of training materials for health care workers. Interventions will address critical road safety risks such as helmet wearing, seatbelt use, drunk driving and speeding. The Unit is also assisting with subprojects such as trauma care in Kenya and India, and data system development in Kenya and Egypt.
