With 1.35 million lives lost each year to road crashes, road safety is a health risk that deserves increased attention and action.
GRSP and the eCBHFA, IFRC’s flagship community health programme, have joined forces to develop a module of road safety training material aimed at National Societies staff and community-based volunteers.
This training material is part of the eCBHFA mission to improve health literacy of community members through evidence-based capacity building, thus empowering communities to identify health risks and improve their well-being.
The new road safety training is one of the primary prevention modules co-developed and piloted by eCBHFA, which combines their behavior change know-how and operational capacity with the evidence-based knowledge and technical expertise of the GRSP team.
The programme is now available on the eCBHFA platform, and with its adaptability to every National Societies’ local needs, cultures, and language it positions itself as a tool for global use. The global road safety crisis cannot be tackled by one agency alone. Partnerships are key in sustainably reducing road crash death and injury worldwide. This road safety training material can contribute to moving the global community of road users a step closer to this goal.
