Abstract: The High-Level Preparatory meeting held in 2009 recommended that the Sixty-second Session of the Regional Committe endorse "Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion" as the subject for Technical Discussions to be held prior to the Sixty-third Session of the Regional Committee in 2010. The Sixty-third Session of the Regional Committee endorsed the subject and the Technical Discussions on "Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion" were held in May 2010. In September 2010, the Sixty-third Session of the Regional Committee noted the report of the Technical Discussions and adopted a resolution on the subject (SEA/RC/63/R2). The resolution urges Member States to advocate for establishement of a national mechanism or authority at the highest level and declare injury prevention as a national agenda; establish or strengthen injury unit in the ministry of health; strengthen national injury surveillance; address local priorities; integrate injury prevention into the public health programmes and policies; strengthen emergency medical services and rehabilitation, and create a network of those who practise injury prevention.
