Preventing childhood injuries: How does Ireland compare to other European countries?

Child injury is the leading cause of death for children and adolescents aged 5-19 years in Europe. IPH participated in the European TACTICS (Tools to Address Childhood Trauma, Injury and Children’s Safety) project to evaluate the level of safety provided to children and adolescents in each country. The project scores countries on their level of adoption, implementation and enforcement of proven strategies and policies. The findings are published this week in Child Safety Report Cards for each country.
