About The Global Initiative for Child Health & Mobility
Every day more than 3000 children and adolescents – a toll equivalent to the student population of two large schools – suffer a road traffic death or serious injury. Road danger and air pollution blight the school journeys and lives of millions more. The health burden to children caused by motorised traffic constitutes a major obstacle to child development and an unacceptable and preventable human tragedy.
Every child deserves a safe and healthy journey to and from school. The Global Initiative for Child Health & Mobility is a coalition of organisations and agencies coming together to advocate and work for this vision to become reality by 2030. Practical and cost-effective solutions are available, and can be delivered with sufficient political will.
