North Carolina Injury and Violence Prevention Branch

Injury and violence are significant and largely preventable public health problems. Each year, injuries and violence keep millions of adults and children from achieving their goals.

The N.C. Injury and Violence Prevention Branch envisions North Carolina free from injuries and violence where lives are lived to their full potential. The work of the branch includes:

  • Collecting and analyzing injury data to better understand the problem.
  • Implementing programs to prevent injuries and violence.
  • Coordinating and assisting groups working to prevent injury and violence to address the problem comprehensively.

You can understand how big the problem of injury is in North Carolina by viewing the “Injury Iceberg.”
