Post-Crash Response

Supporting those affected by road traffic crashes


The World Health Organization has released a report that outlines policies for improving health care and other systems to provide the key elements of post-crash support. As relates to the post-crash response, survivors and families affected by road traffic crashes have a range of physical, psychological and legal needs. An effective post-crash response requires integration of injury care, mental health services, legal support and legislation, and data on road traffic crashes and injuries. The report includes case studies from various countries.
