Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015 - Summary

The Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011–2020) calls on countries to implement the measures identified internationally to make their roads safer. The UN General Assembly invited WHO to monitor progress through its Global status report on road safety series. This report is the third in the series, and provides a snapshot of the road safety situation globally, highlighting the gaps and thereby encouraging the need for countries and the international community to galvanize greater and faster action.
