AIP Foundation was a leading actor in the movement that spurred the Vietnamese government to implement a national helmet law in December 2007, which has resulted in impressive and far-reaching savings for the country and its people. According to updated estimates, in the eight years since the legislative change, US $4.5 billion in medical costs, lost output, and pain and suffering have been avoided, along with 33,500 fatalities and 670,000 serious injuries prevented.

While sustained, targeted efforts are still needed to address the continued chaos and danger of Vietnam’s roads, this data shows that change is possible and can affect millions of people.
