Baltimore, USA – 26th May 2023
This year, the Global Road Safety Leadership Course took place between 7th – 19th May. Nga Duong, Program Manager, and Trang Truong, Senior Program Manager at AIP Foundation, were delighted to attend. This course aims to build leadership capacity to design, advocate for, and implement effective road safety programs and policies. With a focus on key leadership principles, the GRSLC explores topics centered on the key areas of focus of the 2nd Decade of Action for Road Safety, covering topic areas including:
– The road trauma problem: an overview of the global burden
– Road safety risk factors
– The role of road policing in road safety
– Post-crash response: measurement, data, and case studies
– Urban design for road safety
– Safer vehicles and road safety
“During the course, I had the opportunity to visit a great example of road infrastructure set up for pedestrian protection in New York City. The knowledge I gained at the course will enable me to work together with my team at AIP Foundation and the Government of Vietnam in the design and implementation of even more critical road safety projects to save more lives,” shared Trang Truong on her experience at the Global Road Safety Leadership Course.
