Violence and Injury Prevention

Methodology

The data collection and validation method used for this report was modelled on that used in WHO’s first Global status report on road safety.

It involved systematically gathering data and other information from each country, coordinated by a National Data Coordinator. Within each country the questionnaire was completed by individual respondents representing ministries of health, justice, law enforcement and the police, education, gender and women, children and social development, and, where relevant, nongovernmental organizations working on violence prevention.
