    • Description:
      When Safe States was first presented in the fall of 1997, many state injury preven- tion programs were moving from a very small level of “catalyst” funding, often involving just a few staff, to larger, more established programs. At that time, the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association (STIPDA) identified the core components of state injury programs and phases of development to help guide their evolution.

      Although some state injury prevention programs are still relatively new and could be considered to be in the earlier stages of development, the landscape has changed considerably in the past five years – for the better. For example, building on the Safe States process and other consensus-building activities, STIPDA’s mem- bership has organized a system of peer assessment called State Technical Assessment Teams (STAT). STAT assists states in developing and enhancing injury prevention programs. The process brings a team of injury prevention pro- fessionals into a state to assess the status of the state health department’s injury prevention program and to make recommendations for improvement. The com- bination of support, focus, and growing technical expertise has helped many state injury prevention programs expand their scope and contribute even more to injury prevention efforts across the country.

      This version of Safe States updates the earlier document. The core components have changed slightly, but the underlying message remains the same: with ade- quate support from their parent agencies, legislators, and many stakeholders, state injury prevention programs are poised to dramatically affect the burden of injury across the country.
