Description:Violence and Injuries – A Significant Public Health Problem -- Core SVIPP – Empowering States to Save Lives -- Core SVIPP – Structure and Awards.
Violence and injuries are the leading cause of death for the first four decades of life. In fact, in the first half of life, more Americans die from violence and injuries than from any other cause, including cancer, HIV, or the flu. And deaths are only part of the problem. Each year, millions of people are injured and survive. Injuries can cause life-long mental, physical, and financial problems.
Deaths and injuries from motor vehicle crashes, prescription drug overdoses, traumatic brain injuries, falls, child maltreatment, and other injuries are preventable. One of the best ways to prevent violence and injuries is to empower states to take action to protect their residents by implementing, and evaluating evidence-based injury and violence prevention (IVP) programs and policies.
