  1. Injury control in Africa : getting governments to do more.

    Article - En anglais

    Despite increasing recognition of injury as a major public health problem worldwide, it has received limited attention and resources.

    This lack of attention is most notable in low-income countries.

    As part of efforts to develop coordinated injury control activities in Africa, a round table session was held at the Third International Conference on Injury Prevention and Control in Melbourne, Australia.

    The aims of the forum were to provide injury control researchers from Africa the opportunity to come together and reflect on issues of injury control in Africa, to deliberate on strategies of getting African governments to show more interest in injury control, and to solicit more assistance from the international donor community Participants from Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe presented the magnitude of the injury burden in their respective countries, reflected on current research efforts and highlighted the preventive efforts being undertaken.

    The forum made many recommendations including several regarding specific actions required of African governments, individual researchers and donor agencies.
