The role of public health in injury prevention



Apollo Policy briefing

Nine policy briefings addressing strategies and best practices for the reduction of injuries are the result of the international Apollo project where WHO/Europe was one of the partners, and co-author of the policy briefings.

The project aimed to provide evidence on the health and financial burden of injuries and easily measurable indicators and recommendations on how to overcome the barriers in applying existing best practices and efficient policies to decrease the most common injuries in European countries.
