Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States; among infants and children, ages 0-19, injuries and violence result in over 9 million emergency room visits a year. Worldwide, the toll of domestic violence and community violence continues from one generation to the next.

We work across international, national, state, and local boundaries to integrate evidence-based injury, suicide, and violence prevention into public health and health care systems. We gather and use data to inform policies, programs, and practices so that efforts are targeted to the populations and communities where needs are greatest and the greatest impact can be achieved.
