Road Safety Program
Road accidents are a major cause of deaths and injuries. It represents a serious public health problem all over the world. The scenario in a developing country like ours is worse. Majority of the trauma cases are due to road traffic accidents. Considering the fact, the theme of the World Health Day 2005 was "Road safety is no accident".

Road traffic accidents alone claim more than 4000 death and 5000 severe injuries every year in Bangladesh. The annual economic cost of the traffic accidents alone exceeds Taka 5000 crore (US$ 800 million). There remains much scopes for improving the safety situation and for that there is obviously need for much efforts.
