Abstract

Unequal distribution of child injury

The burden of childhood injury is unequal distributed across populations

Low socio-economic status - related to low levels of education, employment and income, lower home ownership - associated with poor health and increased exposure to health risk factors

• Globally, children from poor families are disproportionately affected by injuries

• WHO World report on child injury prevention 2008 argued that child injury be included as a key component of a broader global child health agenda

Indigenous children are at risk in many countries
