“Helmets for Kids: evaluation of a school-based helmet intervention in Cambodia”, a research paper written by AIP Foundation, has been officially published by The BMJ (British Medical Journal) .
The paper analyses helmet use before and after implementation of Helmets for Kids, AIP Foundation’s school-based helmet distribution and road safety program in Cambodia. At program target schools, observed helmet use increased from below 1% to nearly 90%, indicating that such intervention can have significant impact.
Joining the global body of knowledge on injury prevention, the paper’s methodology and conclusions help to make road safety more achievable world-wide.
