Child Injury Prevention Guideline
Injuries Afflict Children Across China
Injuries afflict children across China. The most common causes of injury, both fatal and non-fatal, include road traffic accidents, cuts from sharp objects, falls, drowning, burns, animal bites and poisoning. These injuries frequently result from exposure to unintentionally dangerous environments in the home, community and school, inadequate supervision and a lack of awareness of risks or practices that expose children to risks of injury.
