SaveLIVES: A Road Safety Technical Package
Halving the number of road traffic deaths and injuries by 2020 and providing access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all by 2030, are big challenges and require significant upscaling of road safety initiatives. WHO has released the Save LIVES technical package to support road safety decision-makers and practitioners as they seek to meet the SDGs. The package focuses on six key strategies incorporating 22 interventions for reducing road traffic deaths:
- Speed management,
- Infrastructure design and improvement,
- Vehicle safety standards,
- Enforcement of traffic laws
- Survival [post crash].
The table below shows the 22 interventions needed:
road safety technical package to support our efforts in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal targets 3.6 and 11.2. The package sets out the key issues in a clear, visual, and straightforward way. We, at the Alliance, see this package becoming a key resource for our members and our capacity building efforts and Alliance Empowerment Program are planned to be aligned
to the recommendations outlined in the SaveLIVES package.
