Evaluation: Helmet Day! Lessons Learned on Vietnam’s Road to Healthy Behavior

The Social Science Research Council

11 June 2010

This report, produced by the Social Science Research Council, covers the history and lessons from an eight-year effort that resulted in a national law mandating helmet use by motorcycle riders. Results showed decreases in serious head injuries and road traffic deaths. The research provides a lens on the process of creating achievable policy and behavioural change and offers a set of lessons learned that, in whole or in part, may be applicable to other public health issues. Atlantic funded both the injury prevention work and the evaluation research.
