More children's lives would be saved with investments in proven good practice in safety.

Injuries to children could be reduced if proven safety strategies were adopted and implemented across all European countries. A new publication, the 'Child Safety Good Practice Guide' was launched June 26th by the European Child Safety Alliance – EuroSafe3 at the 1st European Conference for Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion. The Guide provides guidance on what those proven effective strategies are.
