African and international health experts step-up efforts to curb violence and injuries


31 MARCH 2006 | GENEVA/DURBAN -- For the first time, a major international conference on the prevention of violence and injury will be held in Africa. The 8th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion will convene Africa's leading public health experts and others from around the world in Durban, South Africa to share the latest scientific knowledge on preventing violence and injury-related death and disability.
In the World Health Organization (WHO) African region, rates of violence and injury are among the world's highest. Based on the most recent estimates from 2002, six of the top 15 causes of death for Africans aged 15-44 years result from injuries: homicides, road traffic injuries, war-related injuries, drownings, suicides and poisonings. Studies show that for South Africans, homicide and road traffic injuries are, respectively, the third and seventh leading causes of death. Across Africa, poverty, income and gender inequality, and a lack of prevention measures at home, work and on the street are key factors that contribute to these high rates.

Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan, WHO patron for violence prevention, and the 8th World Conference's keynote speaker, comments, “If we summon the will, if we work together, we can build a global commitment to violence and injury prevention and create a peaceful, safe and healthy future."

Great pictures. The Queen looks great and very relax. She looks like she really enjoying herself. Did the Queen have any of her children with her this time?

Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan praised the head of obstetrics at Tygerberg Hospital on Monday for the institution's "outstanding" work in maternal and child care.

Before being whisked off to the airport, she was given a 45-minute tour of the labour and neonatal wards and the family planning clinic on day two of a trip to South Africa in her capacity as a United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) global leader for children.
