UN Global Safety Week

During 8-14 May, the UN Global Safety Week is held for the fourth time. The Week will focus on speed and what can be done to address this key risk factor for road traffic deaths and injuries.

The UN Week is a unique advocacy opportunity that contributes to achievement of the road safety-related Sustainable Development Goal targets 3.6 and 11.2.

On the occasion of the UN Week, WHO will also release Save LIVES: a road safety technical package, which details 22 key evidence-based measures considered most likely to impact on road traffic deaths and injuries, including a number linked to managing speed.
