Representatives from AIP Foundation collaborated with fellow road safety NGOs and shared lessons learned from its own initiatives as part of the Fifth Global Meeting of Nongovernmental Organizations Advocating for Road Safety and Road Victims in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The biennial meeting was organized by the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety, the Ministry of Transport of Malaysia, and the World Health Organization.
AIP Foundation sent three staff members as part of its delegation. Mirjam Sidik, CEO, discussed the organization’s pedestrian safety and government advocacy work during a session hosted by the Global Initiative for Child Health and Mobility. Pagna Kim, Cambodia Country Director, presented on school-based programs promoting child helmet use. Ratanawadee Winther, Thailand Chairperson, participated in a panel that focused on the role gender plays in road safety issues.
On the final day of the meeting, AIP Foundation delegates joined fellow attendees in signing the Declaration of Malaysia, which states the commitment of the road safety community and other key stakeholders to implementing practical, evidence-based measures to improve road safety and post-crash response.
