Child injuries and violence
World report on child injury prevention
Every day more than 2000 children die from an injury which could have been prevented. This joint WHO/UNICEF report is a plea to keep kids safe by promoting evidence-based injury prevention interventions and sustained investment by all sectors. The report presents the current knowledge about the five most important causes of unintentional injury – road traffic injuries, drowning, burns, falls and poisoning – and makes seven recommendations for action.
