Priority Injury Prevention Areas

In 2017, the AWISS team were commissioned to identify and develop a list of key injury indicators (listed below), to improve injury surveillance and support injury prevention programs and policies throughout Wales. A consultation process with interested individuals and groups across Welsh health boards, Public Health Wales, Universities, and third sector organisations, identified 25 key injury prevention indicators for Wales  listed below.

All are reported as incidence rates per 100,000 population.
