Working with Partners

As road safety is a larger multi-factorial issue, a multi-sectoral response is the need of the hour.  The centre works actively with professional organizations – ministries of health, transport, police, urban development, local municipal bodies, education, media and infrastructure agencies at local, national and international levels to facilitate a larger multi-sectoral approach to road safety.  Annual stakeholder consultations are organized by the Centre bringing in professionals from various disciplines to jointly address road safety issues.
