The Core Team is grateful for the overwhelming interest that students and universities from across the UAE showed in reducing the number of road traffic incidents among youth in the UAE.
The teams at PHTT 2016 created a remarkable range of interventions to reduce road traffic incidents among youth in the UAE. Take a look at their abstracts and presentation slides!
On Day One, the participants received lectures on the prevalence of road traffic incidents in the UAE, how to design a successful public health action plan, and an overview of different intervention strategies that have been attempted in the past. Take a look at the speakers’ slides!
The UAE has made reducing road traffic incidents a key part of its Vision 2021 national agenda and a separate Key Performance Indicator. While the continued emphasis has resulted in significant reductions in road fatalities, the numbers have started rising again in parts of the country.
