Injury prevention

 The Injury Prevention Program that was launched back in 2014 under the title “Know prevention, Prevent injury” comes as a real-life example of DoH efforts that are dedicated to prevent fatal and non-fatal injuries and reduce related cases of completely avoidable fatalities for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, being among DoH’s chief priorities.

Through this program, DoH is targeting all age groups in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and working towards creating a safer society that not only recognizes the causes and factors surrounding injuries, but also involves in finding appropriate solutions to reduce injuries.

Based on DoH statistics during 2015-2016, over 77.5% of non-fatal injuries among children occur at or around the home.

In response to these statistics, DoH launched a home injuries prevention campaign titled, “A child’s eyes see no danger” with an aim to raise awareness about preventive measures to help protect children from potential injuries.
