Training of Trainers on Community Sensitization on Road Safety



According to World Health Organization report on Road Traffic Injury and Prevention,
road traffic injuries are a major but neglected public health challenge that requires
concerted efforts for effective and sustainable prevention. Of all the systems with which
people have to deal every day, road traffic systems are the most complex and the most
dangerous. Worldwide, an estimated 1.2 million people are killed in road crashes each
year and as many as 50 million are injured. Out of which 48% are car occupants.
Projections indicate that these figures will increase by about 65% over the next 20 years
unless there is new commitment to prevention.
