World Health Day celebrations at WHO headquarters

In the foyer of the WHO main building, there was an eye testing facility, CPR instruction, road signs knowledge test as well as the distribution of WHD advocacy materials, including the summary of the World report on road traffic injury prevention.

Outside WHO headquarters, there was a "crash-test" site of simulation vehicles provided by Touring Club Suisse, a seat-belt wearing simulator, as well as a radar speed gun which advised motorists of their speed approaching the building.
