International Award for Research Network

18 April 2011

The Road Traffic Injuries Research Network -  partnership of almost 500 individuals and institutions - from 62 countries that collaborate to further research on the impact and causes of road traffic injuries (RTI) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) and to identify appropriate interventions to the problem.


Presenting his International Award to the founding director Adnan Hyder of John Hopkins University, and Margie Peden of WHO, Prince Michael said: “The Road Traffic Injuries Research Network is a remarkable innovation which brings together more than five hundred institutions and experts to share knowledge on road injury solutions from across the world. It has already proved its worth in helping to make the case for a Decade of Action for Road Safety. Now it is poised to grow even further.”

During the past decade, the RTIRN has developed strategic activities to contribute significantly for both capacity development and research promotion in the field of road traffic injuries. RTIRN has trained over 750 individuals, given out over 27 grants of all sizes, directly helped over a dozen institutions, grown 500% in 5 years (from less than 100 partners in 2005 to 500 in 2010), and worked in the developing regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America using innovative methods for training, capacity development and research promotion.
