Training, Educating, and Advancing Collaboration in Health on Violence and Injury Prevention
TEACH-VIP is a comprehensive injury prevention and control curriculum which has been developed through the efforts of WHO and a network of global injury prevention experts. The course material is designed around a classroom instruction model, with PowerPoint slide presentations and supporting lecture notes which address a wide variety of topics relevant to injury prevention and control. In September 2004 the material went into a pilot testing phase involving 23 settings worldwide and a wide variety of training audiences. From September 2005 WHO will make the training material generally available for settings wishing to provide instruction in the area of injury prevention. The training materials and a variety of other capacity building resources will be made available in CD-ROM format. The actual training materials are structured around 60 lessons, each lesson taking approximately one hour of classroom time to teach.
