Over 1.51 lakh people lose their lives every year in India in road accidents and many more are debilitated. This causes immense economic hardship and emotional trauma for their families. There is an urgent need to make our roads safer as the loss of lives and limbs cannot be accepted as the price of mobility.
The Central and the State Governments have been implementing various measures to make roads safer. The magnitude and gravity of the problem however demands that the society at large also takes ownership of the issue to make road safety a social movement.
To give all road related stakeholders an opportunity to take part in concerted action for the cause, "National Road Safety Week" is observed throughout the country every year,for generating awareness regarding the need for safe roads. This year, the 31st Road Safety Week will be nationally observed from 11th January to 17th January 2020.
As part of the 31st Road Safety Week Celebrations, the International Road Federation – India Chapter is organizing a One day Conference on Trauma Care on 15th January 2020, with the support of Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH), and in association with Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) at the FICCI Auditorium, Federation House, TansenMarg, New Delhi-110001.The programme would provide a stage for meaningful deliberations that would result in a road map for development and instituting committed partnerships.
