Original Article

Injuries are responsible for approximately 10% of the global burden of disease (GBD).1 Globally, the leading causes of death from injuries are road traffic injuries (RTIs), falls, drownings, and burns.1 In 2013, nearly 1.4 million people died due to RTIs, and 88% of these fatalities occurred in low- and middleincome countries (LMICs).1 Another half a million died from fall injuries in the same year, also overwhelmingly in LMICs.1 Annually, around 368,110 drown and another 237,516 die from burns.1 These injuries are consuming more lives than before because of globalization, motorization, and concurrent decrease in other causes of deaths such as infectious diseases.
