The Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) is a global multi-donor fund hosted by the World Bank. Its mission is to help governments develop road safety management capacity and scale up road safety delivery in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). GRSF provides funding, knowledge, and technical assistance designed to scale-up the efforts of LMICs to build their scientific, technological, managerial and delivery capacities for road safety.

Download the report.

2 PM – 2:35 PM: Technical Presentation and Discussion on Road Safety Data

Technical Presentation: Importance of Road Safety Data & Availability of Population-Level Data Sources for Tracking the Incidence of Deaths and Injuries from Road Traffic Crashes in Low-Income and Middle- Income Countries Presenters: Sudeshna Mitra, Transport Specialist, GRSF & Juan Miguel Velasquez, Transport Specialist, GRSF Tracking progress towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3·6 of reducing traffic deaths and serious injuries poses a measurement challenge in most low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) due to large discrepancies between reported official statistics and estimates from global health measurement studies. In this study we assessed the extent to which national population censuses and health surveys can fill the information gaps by reviewing questionnaires for nationally representative surveys and censuses conducted since 2000 in LMICs.
