Violence and Injury Prevention

Injury prevention and control national capacity survey

As part of the implementation of WHO’s global strategy for the prevention of injuries and violence, VIP and our regional advisors are currently conducting an assessment of national capacity for injury prevention and control in many countries around the world. This assessment is an attempt to clearly define national and regional profiles of injury prevention & control activities in order to outline regional strategies. A database summarizing these results, country by country, will be available in early 2005. For further information please contact Ian Scott at
