At the 9th World Conference for Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion, Merida, Mexico, March 14 - 18, 2008

The 9th World Congress was a successful event with some 1200 participants attending world-wide. A number of researchers and practitioners specialising in the field of child injury prevention were also present and participated through oral and poster presentations.

An awards programme was part of the congress and we are pleased to announce two awards were granted as part of the European Child Safety Alliance and its partners:
