The centre is a multidisciplinary academic and community collaboration with the aim of understanding injury patterns in populations and facilitating development of prevention programmes.

The focus of work has been on Road Traffic Injuries (RTIs), suicides, violence and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBIs). Activities of the centre include applied research projects, capacity strengthening and human resource development, programme development and implementation, facilitating development of appropriate policies and advocacy programmes. Activities are undertaken in collaboration with associated departments and centres, government departments and international agencies at local, national and international levels.

Mission

The activities involved in this process include injury and RTI surveillance, recognition of potentially modifiable risk factors, evidence based intervention strategies and systematic evaluations. The programmes are built on the critical aspects of epidemiology, public health, behavioral and social sciences, clinical medicine, demography, bio-statistics, health planning and policy process.
