New Report, Campaign Call For World Leaders To Take Global Action On Road Traffic-Related Health Issues
FIA Foundation: Call for urgent action as ‘fatal disconnect’ in global health policies fails child victims of road traffic
“The international community is failing to take action on a global health crisis caused by road traffic, which kills 350,000 children and adolescents each year and causes serious harm and injury to millions more, says a new report and campaign launched [Monday] at the World Health Assembly in Geneva. The report, ‘Unfinished Journey: The Global Health Response to Children & Road Traffic,’ … identifies road traffic as one of the most neglected issues affecting the health and well-being of young people. … The report … spearheads a new campaign calling for a first-ever summit of world leaders on child and adolescent health to urgently re-focus global policy to address this road traffic-related health crisis…” (5/21).
