Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention is an important aspect of health and well-being. As an area of public health, injury prevention can be defined as efforts to prevent or reduce the severity of injuries before they occur.

AICBR takes a community-based approach to injury prevention by changing communities’ norms and behaviours and by altering the physical environment of communities to reduce the risk of injury. AICBR is a member of Safe Communities Whitehorse and Safe Communities Canada.
