Global Resources: Sector Specific

 World Health Organization *  International Fuel Prices: GTZ *
The World Report on Road Traffic Injury Prevention is the first major report jointly issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank on this subject. It underscores their concern that unsafe road traffic systems are seriously harming global public health and development. It contends that the level of road traffic injury is unacceptable and that it is largely avoidable. The statistical annex provides the number and rate per 100,000 population of mortality caused by road traffic by countries.
