New Resource Spotlight

'Improving Road Safety for Urban Children'

Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death globally for children and young adults between the ages of 5 and 29.
This brief provides a summary of key evidence on preventing road traffic injuries among children and effective evidence-based interventions. While evidence is most extensive for high-income settings, there is an increasing body of evidence on the cost-effectiveness of interventions in low- and middle-income settings. The brief includes global policy commitments and resources for more information and practical support.
