Safety 2010: 10th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Control

21–24 September 2010, London, UK. The key theme of the conference is Safe and equitable communities, chosen because levels of almost all types of injuries fall more heavily on poorer communities. Such differences are apparent both within countries, between countries and even between global regions. While there is a clear pressure to make all communities safe, the conference will draw special attention to the need to consider equity in prioritising actions and identifying those most at need and most likely to benefit from safety initiatives.
