The Community Action on Adolescents and Injury Risk (AdRisk) project responds to the call for an integrated approach to reduce the injury risk among adolescents. AdRisk defines adolescents as young people aged 15-24. The project focuses on national policy and strategy development, situation analysis, network development and the provision of tools and good practices. AdRisk refers to the 2006 EC Communication “Actions for a safer Europe” which defines injury and accident prevention as a priority for the Public Health Programme.

The AdRisk project collaborates with partners in Member States for the exchange of information on good practices and actual policies within the framework of a partner network, supported by this website platform on Youth – Risk - Injury Prevention.
Based on the situation analysis, strategy recommendations will be provided to the governments. National and youth-related agencies will be encouraged to develop national programmes for action on injury prevention among adolescents and integrate youth into existing programmes.
Ultimately, the project will support the implementation of country programmes and activities that should contribute to reducing the high toll of injuries among adolescents in EU Member States and candidate countries.
The project will provide guidelines for national action plans. Competent national stakeholders will be supported with know how and seed money to develop a national consultation process and national action plans on youth and injury prevention.
If you want to get involved in this project and help initiate national action on youth and injury prevention, read the call for partners on the AdRisk web site.
