Turkey - Road Safety in 10 Countries Project

The Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) is currently working with a consortium of international partners to improve road safety in 10 low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) around the world. Dubbed the Global Road Safety Program, formerly known as the RS-10, the five-year initiative draws on support from Bloomberg Philanthropies and collaboration with the World Health Organization to implement and evaluate road safety programs where they are needed most. JH-IIRU is responsible for the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the road safety interventions in all 10 countries, as well as the development of training materials for public health professionals and health care workers. Interventions address critical road safety risks such as helmet wearing, seatbelt use, drunk driving and speeding. JH-IIRU has partnered with local collaborators in all 10 countries to carry out monitoring and evaluation activities. In Turkey, JH-IIRU has collaborated with the Middle Eastern Technical University (METU) since early 2010.
