On the 19th of November, the International Road Safety Conference was held in Malta, hosted by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, the Ministry of Health and WHO, with participants representing national as well as international collaborating partners and donors. The United Nations Special Envoy for Road Safety, Jean Todt, also attended the conference.
These entities, which also included youth representation, came together to raise awareness about road safety and what actions can be taken to save lives and prevent injuries on our roads, together and in remembrance of those killed and catastrophically injured.
Road traffic fatalities are immensely tragic as in most cases they could be prevented. It is vital to remember all those killed and impacted by road traffic crashes and take a stand against further tragedies in their name.
The lost have no voice of their own so those who are left behind must speak for them to get the attention these preventable tragedies require.
