The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) focuses on preventing illness, injury, disability, and death. To spotlight attention and focus activity, CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden has identified 7 public health "winnable battles." These battles address public health issues in which judicious action and implementation of evidence-based and scalable interventions would have an immediate positive effect.
The prevention of motor vehicle injuries is a winnable battle, in part, because of the life-saving potential of seat belts and our opportunity to increase their use. The CDC aims to prevent deaths and injuries from motor vehicle crashes by focusing on modifiable behaviors through coordinated, sustained, and complementary actions with the U.S. Department of Transportation, especially the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
