Abstract: The resolution on injury prevention and safety promotion (IPSP), SEA/RC63/R2 of 2010, was adopted by Member States at the Sixty-third Session of the Regional Committee for South-East Asia, with a request for a progress report to be presented to the Regional Committee in 2014. The progress report reveals that all Member States have national policies or plans on injury or violence prevention. Six of the Member States have an injury management unit in their ministries of health and one is in the process of establishing such a unit. These units, with four or more staff members, have made substantial progress in IPSP. About half the member States of the Region have implemented, sustained or budgeted plans for activities outlined in the resolution. However, some have no plans or have plans without a budget for its implementation. The High-Level Preparatory (HLP) Meeting at the Regional Office in New Delhi, India, from 14 to 17 July 2014 reviewed the attached working paper and made the following recommendations: Action by Member States (1) Member States should continue the implementation of Resolution SEA/RC63/R2 on IPSP and take ahead the way forward for IPSP in the South-East Asia Region as outlined in the progress report. Actions by the WHO Regional Office (1) Support Member States in implementing various initiatives. (2) WHO should report on the progress made with the activities stated in resolution SEA/RC63/R2 on IPSP and those outlined in the way forward in the Seventy-first Session of the Regional Committee in 2018.
