Injuries Social Aetiology and Consequences (ISAC)

Injuries rank high as a cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide with an estimated 4.8 million people dying each year as a result of injuries. Another 973 million persons sustain injuries that require healthcare assistance of some kind.

Our vision is to make a significant and original scientific contribution to injury studies and ultimately social equity in health, poverty reduction and safe development through evidence-based injury prevention and control.
