AIP Foundation Thailand Chairperson Ratanawadee H. Winther and Thailand Country Manager Oratai Junsuwanaruk presented on behalf of AIP Foundation at the ‘East Asia & Pacific Workshop on a Safe and Healthy Journey to School’ held in Bangkok, Thailand. UNICEF organized the meeting with support from the FIA Foundation, the Child Health Initiative, and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The focus of the workshop was on child health and mobility, specifically as they relate to road crashes and air pollution, and attendees included road safety experts, practitioners, and staff from different regional and international organizations, NGOs, and governments.
At the workshop, Ratanawadee provided a regional perspective to road safety interventions through her presentations on our Walk This Way pedestrian safety program being implemented in Vietnam and our Head Safe. Helmet On. helmet program in Cambodia. Oratai also presented on our recent work advocating for safer school bus transportation and for reductions in urban speed limits through our Legal Development Program and Slow Down to Save Lives program in Thailand.
