AIP Foundation, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS), hosted the second LDP meeting of the year in Bangkok. Participants exchanged views and shared information on four key issues: speeding, school bus safety, the Road Traffic Act reform, and two- and three-wheeler safety.
At the meeting, the program also officially welcomed its 18th member, Dr. Bhanitiz Aursudkij, who is a senior professional civil engineer at the Department of Highways. In addition to the LDP members, representatives from the Global Health Advocacy Incubator; the Bureau of Non-Communicable Diseases, Department of Disease Control; the Road Safety Policy Foundation; and the Child Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention Research Center were also in attendance.
LDP Thailand is a collaboration between AIP Foundation and the WHO aiming to reduce road traffic injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement, supported by the BIGRS.
