It is not easy for any health professional to be aware of injury problems and safety issues within their own communities if their main responsibility is not in this field. Health professionals, however, can play an important role in all aspects of injury prevention and safety promotion. This includes not only medical or surgical treatment for the injured patients but also risk assessment, health education, community action, organisational development and advocacy for policy to promote safety at a multi-level in the society. This can be accomplished most efficiently through collaboration with diverse sectors within a community, including hospitals, public health professionals, policy makers, school boards, police departments, fire departments, citizens' coalitions and others. Since 2002, Ajou University School of Medicine and Public Health in Suwon, Korea, has introduced a Safe Community model to many countries in Asia, including Korea, Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand, among others, which is led by The World Health Organization Collaborating Centre on Community Safety Promotion at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
