Delegates to the 64th World Health Assembly of the U.N. World Health Organization say road traffic crashes, drowning, burns, falls and poisoning account for the death of 830,000 children and teens each year.
The deaths are largely preventable through effective interventions -- including enforcing speed limits around schools, using restraints for children in vehicles, removing or covering water hazards, installing smoke alarms and setting up poison control centers -- WHO officials say.
The resolution requires the approval of the World Health Assembly plenary to take effect.
