Intern, Global Road Safety Partnership

Background
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world's largest humanitarian organization, with 190 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.
Organizational Context
The Global Road Safety Partnership (www.grsproadsafety.org) is a hosted programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The Global Road Safety Partnership’s mission is to reduce death and serious injuries as a result of road crashes in low- and middle-income countries. According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries claim more than 1.2 million lives each year and tremendously affect health and development in low- and middle-income countries. In fact, road traffic deaths are the leading cause of death among people aged between 15 and 29 years and cost governments approximately 3% of GDP. Road Traffic injuries and deaths represent a manmade, humanitarian crisis and GRSP/IFRC are committed to evidence-based interventions to address this crisis. The Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP) is a hosted programme of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The Global Road Safety Partnership’s mission is to reduce death and serious injuries as a result of road crashes in low- and middle-income countries. According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries claim more than 1.25 million lives each year and tremendously affect health and development in low- and middle-income countries. Globally road traffic deaths are the leading cause of death among people aged between 15 and 29 years and cost governments approximately 3% of GDP. Road traffic injuries and deaths represent a manmade humanitarian crisis and GRSP/IFRC are committed to evidence-based interventions to address this crisis. Under the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS), the Global Road Safety Partnership works in five low- and middle- income countries and ten priority cities to reduce road crash deaths and serious injuries. In particular, GRSP focuses on strengthening road safety policies and their implementation through the provision of grants and technical assistance to local civil society organizations, Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies, and relevant government agencies. GRSP also works closely with road police agencies to strengthen their capability to enforce road safety policies. The third pillar of GRSP’s work under the BIGRS is in organizign and implementing a Global Road Safety Leadership Course in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University’s International Injury Prevention Unit. The Global Road Safety Leadership Course takes place two times per year. Interested individuals can find more information at www.grsproadsafety.org.
