AIP Foundation CEO Mirjam Sidik joined fellow road safety advocates at the 2017 Australasian Road Safety Conference (ARSC2017), the largest road safety-dedicated conference in the Southern Hemisphere. At the conference, Sidik presented on our contributions to Vietnam’s National Child Helmet Action Plan, which aims to increase helmet use among child motorcycle passengers. She also discussed Street Wise, our pedestrian and helmet safety program sponsored by Chevron in Thailand. On the final day of ARSC2017, Sidik took part in a symposium on the challenges of implementing and sustaining road safety initiatives in low- and middle-income countries.

ARSC2017 brought together over 500 delegates from around the world, including researchers, practitioners, policymakers, educators, students, as well as traffic management and vehicle safety representatives. The theme for this year’s conference was “Expanding our horizons”, and focused on a range of issue areas identified in the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety such as road safety management, infrastructure, safe vehicles, user behavior, and post-crash care.
