June 13 to 15, 2007 was the interim report back for the 53 Member States of the WHO Euro region since the signing of the declaration and commitment to the Children's Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe (CEHAPE) some 2 years ago in Budapest.

During the meeting in Vienna, Austria it was exciting to hear a number of Member States reported on injury action and specifically shared their country action by detailing their participation in the Child Safety Action Plan (CSAP) project of the European Child Safety Alliance. As well in the opening plenary by the Austrian Minister of Health, the Austrian CSAP was given as a successful country example. Multi level discussions and partnerships have been occurring in several Member States and it was positive to hear Alliance Members in Austria, Hungary and Portugal preparing and/or presenting Member State report backs. An NGO presentation was also part of the plenary Inter-ministerial report back in which the Alliance presented the current challenges and way forward for child injury prevention in the Europe region.
