The Childhood Injury Prevention Network-Bay Area (CIPN-BA) is a multi-disciplinary group of individuals and agencies crossing county lines who share a passion for a safer world.
We are committed to a leadership role in improving the lives of children through building community awareness of children’s injuries as a public health priority, and by influencing legislation. We address both unintentional and intentional injuries as there are a number of similarities in terms of the all-encompassing approach to preventing injuries from ever occurring.
CIPN-BA’s goal is to provide networking opportunities; information and data-sharing; and offer individual expertise in various areas of injury prevention within and beyond the group.
We focus on unintentional injuries for a target population of children 0-14 years of age in these areas:
CIPN-BA also focuses on intentional injuries for a target population of children 0-14 years of age in these areas:
We believe that 90% of childhood unintentional injuries can be prevented. Intentional injuries can also be prevented by changing the underlying conditions that contribute to violence in our community. We are confident that knowledge from multiple disciplines strengthens our approach to prevention. By forming a core of skilled injury prevention practitioners, we are prepared to lead, collaborate, and advocate for effective prevention strategies. One of our objectives is to begin to understand more about how to affect behavior modification within our communities, which will enable children and their caretakers to build resiliency. This knowledge will promote equitable outcomes for all children, and begin to reduce injury disparities that now exist due to race or socio-economic status which often limits cohesiveness of communities.
