Summary
WHO and UNICEF have developed this report to raise awareness about the magnitude, risk factors and impacts of child injuries globally, to draw attention to the preventability of the problem and present what is known about the effectiveness of intervention strategies. The report makes recommendations that can be implemented by all nations to effectively reduce child injuries.

The report compiles current knowledge - and highlights knowledge gaps - regarding various types of child injuries and action that should be taken to prevent them. It is hoped that this report will result in greater global awareness and catalyze political will for action at international, national and local levels to reduce the likelihood and severity of injuries for children everywhere.
