Hosted by the Finnish National Institute for health and Welfare (THL) and co-sponsored by the World Health Organization. Safety 2016 is addressing a broad range of violence and injury prevention topics including emerging issues in the field.
Authors from the research community, the field, policy-making, UN and other international organizations, the civil society, and the industry are invited to submit abstracts on injury prevention and safety promotion. With about 1000 attendees, the Safety 2016 Conference is one of the largest educational and scientific events in the safety promotion community.
