AIP Foundation attended the 2019 Delft Road Safety Course, which was held at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands from September 8 – September 20. The course aimed to bring together stakeholders, advocates, and leaders to participate in capacity building exercises and collaborate on the development of road safety initiatives.
The course provided participants with an overview of the global health and development burden of road safety, including information on key risk groups and behaviors. As part of capacity building, participants learned how to design a road safety strategy and action plan utilizing road safety performance targets. There were also sessions on awareness campaigns and analyzing and interpreting data, in addition to excursions in Amsterdam to learn more about infrastructure through a hands-on approach.
Trang Truong, AIP Foundation Program Manager for Helmet Safety in Vietnam, presented on the road safety crisis in Vietnam and discussed our ongoing interventions and activities.
The aim of Delft Road Safety Courses (DRSC) is to build the capacity of road safety professionals in low and middle income countries (LMICs), and is a cooperation between Delft University of Technology, SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research, and Delft Post Graduate Education and Road Safety for All. The Delft Road Safety Courses are supported by the FIA Foundation.
