Road Traffic injuries (RTIs) claim more than 1.2 million lives annually and are the number one killer of 15-29 year olds, killing 500 children daily. The scale of the problem will continue to grow as urbanization accelerates. The Road Safety for all Symposium aims to bring attention to the burden and challenge of RTIs globally, highlighting the variation in the underlying causes of RTIs and showcasing a selection of successful and scalable interventions.
Dean Michelle Williams will kick off the program at 9:00 am with opening remarks. The symposium will feature two keynotes, delivered by Piyush Tewari, MPA and Adnan A. Hyder, MD, MPH, PhD, and two panels of experts on Road Traffic Injury Prevention and Response. Continental Breakfast will be provided at 8:30am and lunch will be provided at the conclusion of the program at 12:45pm.
