On February 7, 2019, Dr. Abdul Bachani, director of the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit, joined fellow public health leaders and decision makers from around the world for the first meeting of the high-level consultative committee for the Third Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.

Held in Paris, France, the meeting welcomed Dr. Bachani and other experts, including representatives from both the World Health Organization and the United Nations, along with leadership from Sweden – the host country for the 2020 Ministerial Conference on Road Safety.

“Today’s meetings served as a great opportunity for this group to come together, review the current global road safety landscape, and prepare for next year’s conference,” said Dr. Bachani. “In establishing objectives for the conference and priorities for the coming years, we can build upon the momentum and success of our current decade of action on road safety.”

The 2020 Ministerial Conference on Road Safety will take place on June 5, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden.
