Road Safety is the theme of this year’s annual World Health Day celebration, led by the World Health Organization. On April 7, events will be held worldwide to raise awareness about road traffic injuries and public health approaches to prevention.

In the United States, the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and other partner organizations are coordinating events to bring attention to the problem of motor vehicle deaths and injuries in the United States and around the world. Each year, road traffic injuries kill more than a million people around the world and injure tens of millions more.
