LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Injury Prevention Initiative for Africa: Achievements and Challenges

Ronald Lett, Olive Kobusingye



We would be most grateful if you brought to the attention of the readers of African Health Sciences, the following information for IPIFA. The Injury Prevention Initiative for Africa (IPIFA) ratified its constitution at the fourth Annual General Meeting in February 2001. At that meeting, members from 8 African countries, and Associate members present, chose 9 representatives to constitute the IPIFA steering committee. The countries represented were Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The executive was re-elected: Erastus Njeru (Kenya), President; Olive Kobusingye (Uganda) Secretary General, and Fatma Hassan (Egypt) Treasurer. The Injury Control Center Uganda (ICC-U) was designated as the IPIFA secretariat and IPIFA was registered as an NGO in Uganda in 2002.
