As part of the Head Safe. Helmet On. project (HSHO), AIP Foundation has convened its third nationwide stakeholder workshop to discuss the state of road safety in the country. The event will primarily reflect on the achievements and lessons learned from HSHO, a project aimed at increasing motorcycle passenger helmet use in Cambodia, which ends implementation June 1st . It will also serve as a forum to address the continued challenges facing road users and traffic police following the start in January of the enforcement of the new Road Traffic Law.
The HSHO project is a two-year project supported in part by the United States Agency for International Development, Development Innovation Ventures (USAID-DIV), as well as The UPS Foundation and FIA Foundation. This is the third in a series of nationwide workshops meant to increase the capacity of all stakeholder groups in employing sustainable mechanisms to promote increased rates of helmet use. This final workshop under HSHO served as an opportunity to renew participant commitment to strengthening road safety well into the future, across various strata of Cambodian life.
