PLENARY SESSION

PL 01: Violence and Injury Prevention: Global Progress, Stagnation and Opportunities

Date: 5 November 2018
Time: 10:30-11:30
Venue: Bhiraj 2

Background:

The prevention of injuries and violence is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Every day, in every country – across all income levels – millions of people die or suffer nonfatal injuries from road traffic crashes, burns, drowning, falls, poisonings, or from acts of violence against oneself or others. Much progress has been made in reducing this burden as evidenced by the number of effective and cost-effective solutions to prevent injuries and violence. Developments in the field and the surrounding international policy context over the last decade are also creating new windows of opportunity. These developments include, for example, the Decade of Action for Road Safety; Global and Regional Plans of Action to strengthen the health systems response to prevent violence, especially against women and girls and against children; global reports drawing attention to road safety, interpersonal violence, suicide, drowning, falls, disability, and burn prevention and care; expanded partnerships across sectors; and benchmarks to track progress in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals. The opportunity for countries to step up their efforts and apply what has been learned has never been greater.

Objectives:

  1. To take stock of global progress in reducing the burden of injuries and violence
  2. To profile success stories in moving countries toward action
  3. To lay the groundwork for reaching the SDG’s in the decade ahead

PL 02: Multisectoral Actions, Progress, Stagnation and Opportunities

Date: 5 November 2018
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: Bhiraj 2

Background:

More than 5 million people die every year as a result of injuries and violence. The majority of these need multi-sectoral efforts for their prevention and control. Over the last decade, as a result of the proclamation of the Decade of Action for Road Safety, the inclusion of Target 3.6 in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and increased funding to the area, many interventions are being implemented in countries with varying success rates. This session will focus on the principles that underpin multi-sectoral actions for injury prevention and control, and critically examine both successes and failures around the world.

Objectives:

  1. To understand the role of multiple sectors in saving lives from injuries and violence
  2. Profile success stories and examine factors for impact
  3. To understand efforts that did not perform optimally and explore barriers to implementation and prevention
  4. To stimulate a dialogue on key elements for future success in the field.

PL 03: Success Stories on Unintentional Injury Prevention

Date: 6 November 2018
Time: 09:00-10:00
Venue: Bhiraj 2

Background:

More than 5 million people die every year as a result of injuries and violence. The majority of these are the result of unintentional mechanisms such as road traffic collisions, drowning, burns, falls, poisoning etc. Over the last decade, as a result of the proclamation of the Decade of Action for Road Safety, the inclusion of Target 3.6 in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and increased funding to the area, many interventions are being implemented in countries with varying success rates. This session will focus on the principles that underpin both primary and secondary road traffic injury prevention around the world.

Objectives:

  1. To understand the role of data, infrastructure, education, enforcement and trauma care in saving lives from unintentional injuries
  2. To profile success stories on unintentional injury prevention in HICs and LMICs
  3. To understand the role of trauma care in saving lives from unintentional injury

PL 04: Striking towards a Zero – Telerance Society

Date: 6 November 2018
Time: 13:30-14:30
Venue: Bhiraj 2

Background:

Violence is a complex and widespread phenomenon comparable to an epidemic. Different forms of violence occur in all regions, ranging from interpersonal violence to armed conflicts. It can take place in both the public and private spheres. People of all ages and races are susceptible to one or another form of violence and its consequences. Negative effects of violence can take many forms, be they physical, psychological, social or economic. Violence also renders long-term intergenerational impact on children living with violence. Despite its preventable nature, violence is often perceived as inevitable. Considerable efforts have been made to solve the problem at its end, with measures to protect people already effected by violence. This plenary invites the speakers and audience to envision the way forwards to a non-violent society. It moves the discussion of violence elimination beyond protective measures by highlighting prevention as a long-term strategy. The session will start with an overview of different forms of violence, including their prevalence and consequences. It will then emphasize the profiling of effective interventions and preventive measures to eradicate violence. The plenary is expected to generate ideas contributive to the fulfilment of relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Objectives:

  1. To give an overview of the global situation of violence, including data on prevalence, trend and consequences of different forms of violence.
  2. To generate a discussion on effective interventions and preventive measures as a long-term strategy to tackle violence.
  3. To generate ideas contributive to the fulfilment of relevant SDGs.

PL 05: Advancing Injury and Violence Prevention to support SDGs. The Way Forward

Date: 7 November 2018
Time: 13:00-14:00
Venue: Bhiraj 2

Background:

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) where countries have committed to in 2015 provide direction for them to move forward in the next decade. Around one third of the Sustainable Development Goals are related to violence and injury prevention. This shows the importance of violence and injury prevention to global and national movements. These goals required integrated actions across stakeholders. However, violence and injury in particular road traffic injury is leading cause of death.

This session would provide room for participants and panellists to collectively share their idea on what are required and how we should take actions in order to achieve SDGs by 2030.

Objectives:

General objective: Identify the direction to strengthen national and local capacity to achieve safety-related SDGs

Specific objectives: Identify the direction to strengthen national and local capacity to achieve safety-related SDGs

  1. What are prerequisites for multi sectoral actions in achieving violence and injury prevention related SDGs? Identify prerequisite(s) for countries/communities to achieve safety-related SDGs.
  2. Way forward in establishing accountability framework for all stakeholders?
