As the AI&Me program comes to a close across Vietnam, we are now proudly launching the Scalibility Analysis Report 2024. This Scalability Analysis Report, and the forthcoming Public Facing Report, shed light on the feasibility, efficiency, and scalability of the AI&Me digital framework for addressing road hazards and enhancing the public’s awareness of road safety risk after its 3 years of pilot implementation in  Vietnam. During its course, the program championed three technological innovations: the Big Data Screening Methodology, Star Rating for Schools (SR4S) and the Youth Engagement App (YEA).

 

A Blueprint for Better Safety: Safe School Zones Guide Vietnam for Global Impact

ACCESSIBLE HERE FOR FREE AND FOR ALL TO USE

All around the world, children are vulnerable road users, particularly when going to and from school. In Vietnam, according to statistics from the National Traffic Safety Committee, during 2016 – 2020, road traffic crashes involving people under 18 years old accounted for 6.75% of the total road traffic crashes, while in 2021, they accounted for 10.63% of the total road traffic crashes nationwide.To protect children and students from further risk, and at the same time reduce the number of traffic crashes that they face on their school journeys, it is necessary to define and highlight that safety in school zones must be a prioritized component taken into account in the preliminary planning stages for every school.

World Health Organization Global status report on road safety 2018

The Global status report on road safety 2018, launched by WHO in December 2018, highlights that the number of annual road traffic deaths has reached 1.35 million. Road traffic injuries are now the leading killer of people aged 5-29 years. The burden is disproportionately borne by pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, in particular those living in developing countries. The report suggests that the price paid for mobility is too high, especially because proven measures exist. Drastic action is needed to put these measures in place to meet any future global target that might be set and save lives.

The High Toll of Traffic Injuries: Unacceptable and Preventable

An estimated 1.25 million people are killed on the world’s roads every year, and between 20 and 50 million people are seriously injured. Every traffic crash is an individual loss. When death or serious injury results, this loss is compounded by the harm to people, households, and social networks. But what is the impact of road traffic injuries (RTIs) on the economic well-being of countries, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) that are already struggling to address the needs of large populations in poverty? By estimating the macroeconomic and welfare effects of road traffic injuries, the report tries both to deepen the analysis and to address the needs of two important groups of government stakeholders. Officials responsible for national infrastructure are interested in evaluating road safety interventions as economic investments. For these stakeholders, a key question is the relationship between the reduction of road injuries and national income growth as measured by GDP metrics. Public health officials, meanwhile, are focused on promoting health, preventing road traffic injuries and deaths, as well as on reducing their health and social burden. These two analytical perspectives illuminate and complement each other, although they each apply a different methodology for the measurement of economic impact. The present report thus attempts to address these specific aspects of economic impact, while providing a comprehensive overview of the challenge in estimating the social impact of RTIs.

Unfinished Journey: The Global Health Response to Children & Road Traffic

Unfinished Journey: The Global Health Response to Children & Road Traffic highlights the gap between evidence on the scale of road traffic’s impact on child and adolescent health and the action. It argues for integrating road traffic injury prevention, air pollution and child NCDs into the UN’s ‘Every Woman, Every Child’ health strategy; sets out the many health and environmental benefits that can accrue from achieving child-friendly health streets in cities across the world; and calls for a first ever UN Summit on Child & Adolescent Health to give momentum to this policy agenda.
