Review of Thailand's status based on the voluntary global targets for road safety risk factors and service delivery mechanism

Project: Research

Project Description

Road trauma is arguably one of the highest ranking public health issues in the world today. Globally, more than 1.3 million people die as a result of road crashes each year and a further 50 million+ people are seriously injured (World Health Organisation [WHO], 2015), and a high proportion of deaths and serious injuries occur in low-and middle-income countries
Internationally, road safety has continuously improved in many countries over the last three to four decades, particularly in European nations, North America and Australia. Many of these successes can be attributed to strong political leadership, successful collaborations and partnerships between key stakeholders and government sectors, clear frameworks for Road Safety Management (RSM), visions, targets and strategies, and development and implementation of effective policies and programs that are evidence-based and scientifically sound.
