  3. Supports a comprehensive or systems approach to address safety problems
The center takes into account the need for strong cross-sectorial relationships in order to achieve the aims of community safety promotion. Various parts are in this relationship including, the academic sector, the municipality sector, the law-enforcement, law-making and legal sector, the nongovernmental societies-organizations, publication and mass media and the  health sector which is incorporated with academic sector in Iranian system and major medical universities are responsible both for education and the health service provision, supervision and policy making.

  • Due to the high approval of our organization and lots of work being done, we are carrying a leading role in many safety related issues. However, especially in field of traffic injuries we have a lot work ahead to be satisfied.
  • With respect to nearly short time of our intensified work, we are known as a scientific leader such that contrary to other Iranian academic centers most of the financial support for the work we do comes from the sources outside the university who rely on our capabilities.

About The First International Safe Community Summer School

 
Injuries and violence pose a major public health and development problem worldwide. According to recent estimates, each year over 5 million people around the world die as a result of an injury. However, this total pales in comparison to the huge numbers who suffer non-fatal, disabling injuries each day. Although injuries and violence affect people of all ages, races and socioeconomic status, we know that the majority of the injury burden occurs among those from low-income and middle-income countries.
Over the past few decades, as more attention has been paid to the worldwide problem of injuries, we have come to a better understanding of the nature and extent of injuries and violence.
Accidents and injuries are no longer perceived as wholly random, unavoidable events but rather as ones that are largely preventable. Addressing injures is an important in injury prevention planning, and the best approach for it is injury surveillance.
For this aim, we will hold a summer school (7 days) to go deep into injury surveillance and it's systems by focus on major injury problems that need to be addressed.
As International Safe Community Certifying Center (Karolinska institute) has planned to hold the second education program for ‎International Safe Community Certifiers in Iranian international safe community support center (Tabriz), so this program will be a part of summer school as well.
For covering both courses (injury surveillance & Safe community certification program), we defined two separated courses in summer school's program:
Course A: Injury surveillance
  1. Application for this course is open for all applicants
  2. The applicants will be approved by Iranian international safe community support center
Course B: Safe community certification program
  1. Application for this course is specified Only for those in safe community program
  2. The applicants of this course will be introduces by International Safe Community Certifying Center (Karolinska institute)
