Make Roads Safe is the Campaign for Global Road Safety. The campaign calls on the international community to recognise road traffic injuries as a global health epidemic, and to take urgent action to stop the daily tragedy of thousands of preventable deaths and injuries.
The Road traffic Injuries Research Network (RTIRN) is a partnership of over 400 individuals and institutions - from 52 countries that collaborate to further research on the impact and causes of Road Traffic Injuries in low- and middle-income countries and to identify appropriate interventions to the problem.
Our vision is to reduce the burden of road traffic injuries, particularly in low- and middle-income countries through the promotion, conduct and utilization of research. Our Goal is to establish networking mechanisms and assist in the creation of partnerships between RTI researchers and institutions globally, to support research and research capacity; and for investments of road traffic injuries research in low- and middle-income countries.
With the support of a grant provided by the Global Road Safety Facility of the World Bank, the RTIRN has supported researchers; run workshops and conducted a Multi –Center Study on Non-standard helmet use. Most importantly RTIRN has used that support to provide scholarships to facilitate attendance for researchers of low and middle-income countries at the Safety 2010 World Conference.
