Preventing and responding to road traffic related trauma

Safe Roads Africa

Road traffic collisions, which include incidents with pedestrians, vehicles and animals, are currently the eighth biggest killer in the world. As many as 1.4 million people are killed every year – about one every 23 seconds – while another 20m to 50m are injured but survive, often with life-changing disabilities.

We Aim to:

Reduce the number of road traffic related collisions in communities

Save lives by responding better to collisions when they occur

Enable people who have been affected by road traffic related trauma to recover and continue living healthy and productive lives
