Read about our key achievements in our yearly Annual Reports.
In 2016, we celebrated our 17th year of saving lives in low- and middle-income countries. Our diverse programs – ranging from developing truck driving trainings and educating children, to empowering the media and advocating local governments – spanned four countries. We distributed 17,444 quality helmets during the 2015-2016 school year, and worked with more than 370,000 students, teachers, and parents. Across all our program countries last year, our community billboards reached more than 1.1 million people.
Our staff – who work at our offices in Cambodia, China, Thailand, and Vietnam – collaborated with fellow industry experts at international conferences and meetings in nine countries. Our mass media campaign in Cambodia received two honors at the International Safety Media Awards in Finland. And, our social enterprise helmet factory, Protec, celebrated its 15th anniversary. The Hanoi-based operation has produced nearly 6.5 million quality helmets since its inception.
AIP Foundation ends its 16th year with exciting progress towards making roads safe. This year, we saw a major shift in the global prioritization of road safety. The United Nations (UN) included two key targets for reducing road deaths and injuries in its Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
AIP Foundation made strides towards improving road safety, but as road crashes remain a leading cause of death, with 1.25 million lives lost on the world’s roads each year, there is still a lot of work to be done.

Gaining momentum, AIP Foundation celebrated many achievements in making roads safer during 2014. We continued developing effective programs based on proven methods that provide life-saving skills to vulnerable road users and strengthened relationships with governments to advance progressive legislation.
In 2013, Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation saw positive changes reduce the burden of road crashes through the international road safety community’s dedication to protect vulnerable road users – motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Building on this momentum, AIP Foundation increased collaboration with governments, expanded pedestrian safety work, and brought helmet safety to more schools than ever before.

2010 has been an exciting year in road safety, with the resolution for the UN’s Decade of Action for Road Safety (2011-2020) approved in March. In the past year, AIP Foundation has expanded its international role through the rapid growth of the Global Helmet Vaccine Initiative. Launched at the first Global Ministerial Conference on Road Safety in November 2009, the Global Helmet Vaccine Initiative is an international coalition of road safety stakeholders with the goal of achieving universal helmet use in the developing world. In 2010, the Global Helmet Vaccine Initiative launched programs in six countries across four continents...
