Study Data from V. Raffo et al Provide New Insights into Global Health Promotion (Case study: the Argentina Road Safety Project: lessons learned for the decade of action for road safety, 2011-2020)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Investigators publish new report on Health and Medicine. According to news reporting from Washington, District of Columbia, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "This case study of the Argentina Road Safety Project demonstrates how the application of World Bank road safety project guidelines focused on institution building can accelerate knowledge transfer, scale up investment and improve the focus on results. The case study highlights road safety as a development priority and outlines World Bank initiatives addressing the implementation of the World Report on Road Traffic Injury's recommendations and the subsequent launch of the Decade of Action for Road Safety, from 2011-2020."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "The case study emphasizes the vital role played by the lead agency in ensuring sustainable road safety improvements and promoting the shift to a 'Safe System' approach, which necessitated the strengthening of all elements of the road safety management system. It summarizes road safety performance and institutional initiatives in Argentina leading up to the preparation and implementation of the project. We describe the project's development objectives, financing arrangements, specific components and investment staging."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Finally, we discuss its innovative features and lessons learned, and present a set of supplementary guidelines, both to assist multilateral development banks and their clients with future road safety initiatives, and to encourage better linkages between the health and transportation sectors supporting them."
