Child Safety Action Planning

Below you will find Child Safety Report Cards and Profiles for Ireland, who is a participant country in the TACTICS project and the past Child Safety Action Plan initiative, along with a link to their planning document. Development of a national child safety action plan is in progress.

Injury Data

The Injury Data section provides bar graphs comparing Ireland's injury death rates with the injury death rates for the other countries in the WHO European Region. Bar graphs are provided in PDF format for easy download for all unintentional injury deaths and by external cause of unintentional injury topic using data from the WHO Mortality Database and the European Report on Child Injury Prevention. In addition, bar graphs for suicide and homicide are also provided, however these data are slightly older.
