Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a significant public health problem in all regions of the globe despite advancement in prevention and treatments. Its global incidence is rising and it is predicted to surpass many diseases as a major cause of death and disability by the year 2020. It is a leading cause of mortality, morbidity, disability, and socioeconomic losses in India as well. For reducing the burden of TBIs, India and other developing countries are facing the major challenges of prehospital care, prevention, and rehabilitation in their rapidly changing environments.
