Transport for Health, a new report coproduced by IHME and the World Bank Global Road Safety Facility, launches at a policy forum hosted by the Overseas Development Institute on March 31. The report examines the health impact of transportation-related injuries and air pollution, which contribute increasingly to disease burden, particularly in lower-income countries. It also describes policy recommendations for reducing the negative health impacts of transport to ensure everyone can safely enjoy its benefits. Representatives from the World Bank, IHME, the FIA Foundation, the Overseas Development Institute, the Health Effects Institute, and The Guardian discuss trends in road safety and vehicle emissions, and directions for the future.
