Monitoring and evaluation

A real impact of interventions in road safety and injury prevention needs to be measured by an actual change in the deaths and injury pattern through systematic monitoring and evaluation. The centre uses both primary and secondary sources of data collected through independent studies and in available information systems to identify the actual change.

In the past, The centre has evaluated the impact of several road safety interventions like the impact of  Helmet legislation, enforcement against drinking and driving, campaigns in road safety, pedestrian safety programmes, highway safety, effectiveness of suicide prevention helpline and interventions. In addition to monitoring road safety activities, systematic situation analysis and baseline analysis has been completed in India and other countries of South-East Asia region, Eastern Mediterranean region.
