Injury Prevention: Achieving Population Level Change

CDC released a special issue of the journal Injury Prevention titled Injury Prevention: Achieving Population Level Change.


From the time that injury was first considered a public health problem, we have learned a lot about “what works” to prevent injury. We continue to be challenged, however, with achieving large-scale change with our injury and violence prevention solutions.


This supplement of Injury Prevention brings together examples of empirically-based, injury prevention research that demonstrate state of the art methods of achieving population-level reductions in injury-related harm. You can read a brief overview of the supplement and the papers featured, including:
