Unintentional injuries, including drug overdose and motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for Americans aged 1-44 years old. Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for this 1-44 age group.

Are you interested in supporting the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy at the Bloomberg School of Public Health with a gift? Your contribution will help to sustain high impact injury prevention research, provide training and education opportunities to faculty and students, and impact policy change to keep everyone in the U.S. safer.  

Gifts from donors like you will help the Center identify and advocate for evidence-based policies and programs that make our communities safer. A selection of our work includes:  

  • Reducing Home Injury Hazards. The Children’s Housing Assessment for a Safer Environment (CHASE) was developed to provide a systematic assessment to report on the prevalence of specific housing-related hazards.  

  • Translating Research into Action. The Center has produced multiple reports and hosted online forums to help state and local health officers, policymakers, health care providers, and faith leaders identify actionable steps driven by the current state of the science to reduce overdose in their communities.  

  • Convening Transportation Experts to make Consensus Recommendations. The Center brought together a panel of engineers, scientists, public health professionals and safety experts to consider a Safe Systems approach to transportation safety and develop consensus recommendations to eliminate traffic deaths and injuries.   

  • Advancing Evidence-Based Suicide Prevention. Center faculty work closely with partners on-the-ground to offer evidenced based solutions to address suicide risk.
