On The Road

Road traffic crashes kill more than 3000 people, including 1000 children and young people, every day. Annually, 1.3 million are killed and at least 50 million are injured. More than 85% of these casualties (and 96% of child deaths) occur in low and middle income countries.

Many of those killed or injured are the breadwinners for their families. And by 2015 road crashes will be the leading cause of premature death, and disability, for children above the age of 5 in developing countries, unless we act now.

We must respond to this epidemic, which kills on the scale of malaria yet has been largely ignored by the international community. I urge people to get behind this cause. Together we can save millions of lives. It is time for action.

  • GREAT SHOW and you have put a clear analysis and good information.

  • Dear Abhishek !
    Nice to see you pick 'Up' (!!) this topic. I too suffered a fatal road accident 2 years back and thus better empathize.
    Just to add that from slide No. 10 onwards, in phrase '...sever disability' the word 'sever' ( = split / separate ) needs to be replaced by 'severe' ( = harsh / rigorous ) disability.
    …and yes… I voted you UP !
    …keep on the (road) show !!
