Injury is a major US public health problem, particularly in urban minority communities.
This paper evaluates the impact of the Safe Block Project, a comprehensive injury prevention trial, on home hazards and injury prevention knowledge in a poor urban African-American community.
Nine census tracts in the community were allocated to either the intervention area or the control area.
The intervention, carried out by trained community outreach workers, consisted of (1) home modification for simple prevention measure, (2) home inspection accompanied by information about home hazards, and (3) education about selected injury prevention practices.
