Track 8 will explore injuries, disability and death caused by violence, traffic and occupational hazards, which are an increasing problem globally. WHO has estimated that trauma kills more people than AIDS, TBC and Malaria together, and that the burden of disability is escalating. Injury prevention, surgery and rehabilitation have long been neglected fields, and radical policymaking and resource allocation are needed to reach universal health coverage. We invite you to present your recent research on injuries and discuss the continuum-of-care, from intersectoral injury- and disability prevention, to the urgency of strengthening global surgical and rehabilitation capacity and -systems.
