dbo:abstract
  • The Alliance for Safe Children (TASC) is a non-profit organization formed in 2002 to address the issue of child injury in the developing world. The founder is Pete Peterson, former United States Ambassador to Vietnam. Michael Linnon is the technical director. TASC works in cooperation with other organizations, such as the Red Cross and UNICEF.Its aims include raising awareness of child injury; promoting injury prevention programmes; conducting and supporting research; and raising funds and creating alliances with NGOs, international organisations and governments so that the number of child injuries can be reduced.TASC's objectives are driven in part by studies suggesting that far more children die from preventable injury than from infectious disease - according to UNICEF about one million children die of preventible injuries each year. A common specific cause of death is drowning. (en)
