In China, injuries are the leading cause of death from age 1 to 44, accounting for approximately 750,000 deaths and 3.5 million hospitalisations every year. Much of the injury-related death and serious injury is due to road traffic injury. The rate of death and injury is growing rapidly, there is an urgent need to implement proven road safety interventions. In the absence of widespread implementation of road safety interventions, the epidemic of road traffic injury will worsen. Following completion of the China Seatbelt Intervention in Guongzhou, The George Institute for International Health along with Central and Guangzhou Municipal Governments in China and BP China will announce the results of the intervention in addition to a cost-benefit analysis of the campaign.
