Description

The NAP lays out a vision to guide actions that are pivotal in reducing the burden of childhood injuries in the United States and will be relevant to all those with an interest in children’s health and safety, including:
• federal, state, and local agencies
• philanthropies, businesses and non-governmental organizations
• schools, educators, insurers, and health care providers
• policymakers
The plan is intended to help align priorities, to capitalize on existing strengths, to fill gaps, and to spark action across the nation that will result in measurable reductions in death and disability, and diminish the financial and emotional burden of childhood injuries in families and society. This outcome can only be realized if relevant stakeholders act on the plan.
