Child Injury Action Group


The developmental and cognitive abilities of children play a significant role in their vulnerability to injury. The function of the Child Injury Action Group (CIAG) is to identify priorities and strategies to reduce child injury in Ohio. The CIAG has identified five focus areas to address in their five-year strategic plan including: teen driving safety, bicycle and wheeled sports helmets, infant sleep-related suffocation, sports-related traumatic brain injury, and child restraint/booster seat law review/revision.

Ongoing priorities of the CIAG include:

  • Increasing statewide collaboration around child injury prevention efforts.
  • Building state and local capacity for child injury prevention efforts.
  • Researching and assessing the feasibility of implementing evidence-based injury prevention policies and programs at the local and state level.
  • Promoting evidence-based child and youth injury prevention programs throughout Ohio.

The CIAG is an action group of the Ohio Injury Prevention Partnership (OIPP).  To become a member of the OIPP or any of the action groups please complete the online membership application.  You will begin to receive meeting notifications and updates about the group's activities.
