Some child safety facts - why Kidsafe is working hard for children

More Australian children aged 1 - 14 years die as a result of injury than from cancer, asthma and infectious diseases combined. In 2005, 35% of all deaths in this age group were due to injury.

Every day, 5000 children require medical attention and around 180 children are admitted to hospitals in Australia as a result of injury. Some of these children will suffer permanent scarring or disability as a result of their injury. Tragically, around four children per week will die as a result of injury.

Since Kidsafe's establishment in 1979 the number of Australian children killed by unintentional injury has been halved.
