Viet Nam Helmet Law

Resource type: Video

Fewer Vietnamese are dying and being injured since the National Helmet Law took effect 15 December 2007, requiring all motorbike users to wear approved helmets. This accomplishment is the culmination of diligent work by the government, including the Ministry of Health, and organisations such as the Ha Noi School of Public Health, United Nations Childrens Fund, Asia Injury Prevention Foundation, Counterpart International and The Alliance for Safe Children, with support from Atlantic and other funders that began in 2000. Atlantic now will focus on other community-based injury prevention, especially for children.
