The Injury Prevention Information Centre aims to reduce the incidence and severity of unintentional
and intentional injury in New Zealand by disseminating the results of New Zealand-based and relevant international injury prevention research to injury prevention
sector practitioners, service providers, policymakers and researchers.
The centre is based in The University of Auckland's School of Population Health.
The Injury Prevention Information Centre provides access to information on the epidemiology of injury, the development
of injury prevention strategies, and research on injury prevention interventions
and their effectiveness, with an emphasis on the New Zealand environment and the
unique needs of New Zealand's Māori, Pacific and Asian populations.
