Around 186 300 children under 18 years die from road traffic crashes annually, and rates of road traffic death are three times higher in developing countries than in developed countries. The Third UN Global Road Safety Week — #SaveKidsLives — seeks to highlight the plight of children on the world’s roads and generate action to better ensure their safety.

The Week features hundreds of events hosted by governments, international agencies, civil society organizations, and private companies, including the delivery of the “Child Declaration for Road Safety” to policy–makers. These events highlight WHO’s package of ten key strategies for keeping children safe on the road.
