  1. Accident risks for suburban preschool Jordanian children.

    Article - En anglais

    This exploratory investigation of child accidents in suburban Jordan 1988-1991 indicated that children were daily exposed to fire, drugs, and chemical agents, and played in dangerous places.

    Children under 2 years of age were frequently burned, and those slightly older injured through falls and cuts.

    Boys were more accident-prone than girls in accordance with practically all previous world-wide studies.

    The overall accident picture was similar to European reports from 50 years ago.

    Many environmental hazards could be explained as being a consequence of relative poverty, but parent's awareness of accident risks for children was low, even among well educated people.

    Strategies to diminish accident risks for pre-school children are suggested.
