Public Health Injury Prevention Portal

Dr. Corinne Peek-Asa of the University of Iowa's School of Public Health sub-contracted with The WiderNet Project to develop a Public Health Injury Prevention Portal which she could then provide to her collaborators overseas.

The portal is a section of the eGranary Digital Library with resources concerning the prevention of trauma and injury. Topices include fire safety, injury prevention in agriculture, policy development, traffic safety, occupational and household safety.

Three hundred and twenty nine resources were identified and of that number permissions were received from one hundred and seventy nine resources, which were then included in the portal.

An eGranary with the Public Health Injury Prevention Portal was delivered to Dr. Peek-Asa last summer. Permissions continue to come in and the portal continues to grow.
