Keeping children safe is a universal priority. Yet each year millions of children are
affected by unintentional injuries, which can result in disability, hospitalization, and
even death. CDC's Injury Center is committed to raising awareness about what research
shows – that there are steps governments, organizations, communities, and individuals
can take to reduce the enormous burden of childhood injury. By keeping our children
safe and secure, we can help them live to their fullest potential.

— Ileana Arias, Director, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, US Centers for

Disease Control and Prevention

We have long known that injury is not well counted outside high-income countries
with their well-developed death registration and certifi cation systems. This report
makes it clear that we need to count these events better, as they are the leading cause
of child death after infancy and equally important, we need to work to prevent them
with the same intensity and commitment as other causes of child death and disability.

— “Pete” Petersen, Co-Founder, The Alliance for Safe Children

The World Report on Child Injury Prevention highlights the urgent need to address
gaps in our knowledge base to understand, control, and prevent child and adolescent
injuries. Research that examines ways to decrease exposure, mitigate risks, and
promote safer interventions is needed worldwide, and especially in low- and middle-
income countries. Paediatric injury research is a global imperative and we hope that
this report will inspire a new era of support, capacity development and utilization of
research fi ndings.

— Adnan Hyder, President, International Society for Child and Adolescent Injury Prevention

The European Child Safety Alliance fully supports the recommendations of the World
Report on Child Injury Prevention, as Europe is a region that has some of the world's
highest and lowest child injury rates. This report refl ects the goals that the Alliance, as a
growing network of 32 countries, is striving to achieve through joint work to advocate
for the adoption, implementation and evaluation of proven good practices in child
injury prevention in the European setting. It is hoped that the work in Europe will also
support efforts in other parts of the world.

— Joanne Vincenten, Director, European Child Safety Alliance

Childhood injury is one of the greatest challenges in present and future global health
care, particularly in Africa; this timely publication of the World Report on Child Injury
Prevention makes a signifi cant contribution to promoting child safety and mitigating
child trauma.

— Sebastian van As, President, Childsafe South Africa

The WHO World Report on Child Injury Prevention provides a call to action to prevent
injury to children worldwide. The solutions are low cost and require simple technology.
We must act now to eliminate death to children from preventable injury in all nations.
Safe Kids Worldwide is committed to this global initiative to save the lives of children.

— Martin Eichelberger, Founder and Director, Safe Kids Worldwide
