What is TACTICS?

TACTICS is a large scale, multi-year initiative working to provide better information, practical tools and resources to support adoption and implementation of evidence-based good practices for the prevention of injury to children and youth in Europe.

In addition, in order to make the lives of all children in Europe safer TACTICS will explore health inequalities as they relate to childhood injury and more specifically target capacity building efforts at the regional and local levels.

The initiative, which runs from April 2011 through to March 2014, builds on the successful work of past EC funded projects such as the Child Safety Action Plan (CSAP) project (2004-2010).

TACTICS is lead by the European Child Safety Alliance in collaboration with a group of academic institutions, NGOs and participation of partners in more than 30 countries including:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Scotland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Wales.
