The World Health Organization (WHO) released the Global Status Report on Road Safety 2013: Supporting a Decade of Action in March 2013, in Geneva, Switzerland. The report presents 2010 data for 182 participating countries and provides a baseline for monitoring the Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011 - 2020) declared by the United Nations General Assembly through resolution 64/255 in 2010. The goal of the Decade is to reduce the increasing trend in road traffic deaths, and to save an estimated 5 million lives over the period.
