Injury is the leading cause of childhood death and a significant contributor to childhood morbidity, mortality, long term disability, and healthcare costs worldwide [1,2]. Around 830 000 children die from injuries every year, nearly 2300 each day. Injury is responsible for about 950 000 deaths in children under the age of 18 years each year. Unintentional injuries account for almost 90% of these cases. It is said that more than 1000 of these children could be saved if proven injury prevention measures were applied worldwide .
