To lower the burden of injuries for the majority of the human race who live in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Faculty from HIPRC have an extensive track record of work in collaboration with partners in Ghana, India, Vietnam, multiple Latin American countries, and the World Health Organization. This work includes several training grants to improve capacity for injury control work in LMICs. The Section works closely with the existing Global Initiative for Violence and Injury Prevention, which is a collaboration of HIPRC, the Department of Global Health, and other departments and schools at UW that are interested in injury control. This initiative has created the Graduate Certificate in Global Injury & Violence Prevention, which is the only formal certification in injury control at UW.
To reduce the burden of global injury related morbidity and mortality through research, education, and public awareness.
Develop grant proposals for the spectrum of injury control (surveillance, prevention, care) and for the spectrum of research, training, and service.
Research projects are organized by PI and their respective Section Membership. HIPRC Faculty may belong to multiple Sections.
