About this course 

The module Social determinants of road traffic injuries is developed for graduate students, PhD students as well as postdocs who are interested in road safety research.

The goal of the module is to provide students with an overview on how social factors (determinants) are associated with road traffic injury risk and to discuss prevention strategies.

This self-study module is intended to encourage young researchers to not only focus on social inequity in road traffic injuries but to develop prevention strategies that explicitly consider social factors. Students who take this course are provided with working papers, presentations as well as suggested readings.
