Children, Young People and Acquired Brain Injury (2008)

Traumatic Brain Injury is highly preventable. Brain Injury Australia recommends that, as part of a whole-of-government approach to Acquired Brain Injury, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs encourages the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government to direct the Australian Transport Council – comprising Federal and all State and Territory Ministers with transport responsibilities – to revise all subsequent National Road Safety Action Plans (constituting the National Road Safety Strategy 2001-2010; aimed at a 40% reduction in the number of road-related fatalities by 2010) to include children as a distinct target for its strategy to “Improve Equity Among Road Users”.
