Description

The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) guides national efforts to reduce the incidence, severity and adverse outcomes of intentional and unintentional injury in the United States. As the lead federal agency for injury prevention, NCIPC works closely with other federal agencies and national, state and local organizations to reduce injury, disability, and premature death caused by motor-vehicle crashes, fires, drownings, poisonings, homicides and suicides, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, child maltreatment and other violent acts and preventable injuries.
