The World Health Organization has stated that each day, 1000 child deaths could have been prevented by taking proven injury prevention measures, and that for every child that dies from an injury, dozens more are left with lifelong disabilities.
Further information provided by the World Health Organization discusses how road traffic collisions are the leading cause of death for children between ages 10 and 19. As awful as it may be to think about, an injury could occur to our child in the blink of an eye, which could result in permanent disabilities, or worse, a fatality.
