The promotion of road safety in South Africa and Africa remains an imperative considering the disproportionately large public health and developmental burden from road traffic crashes across the continent. Extensive and well-intentioned collaborative traffic campaigns held predominantly over the holiday periods have reflected commendable success; however, injury statistics in South Africa and elsewhere remain unacceptably high. It is imperative that both professionals and civil society become more aware of the importance and the basic principles of injury control and traffic safety. The Violence, Injury and Peace Research Unit (VIPRU, co-directed by the South African Medical Research Council and University of South Africa) and the Institute for Social and Health Sciences, University of South Africa will be hosting a training course on injury control and traffic safety in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IITDelhi). The training course will be held from the 2 - 4 October 2017 in Johannesburg.
