Each year 1.2 million people die and up to 50 million
are injured or permanently disabled in road crashes.
iRAP is dedicated to saving lives in developing countries by making roads safer. iRAP targets high-risk roads where large numbers are killed and seriously injured.
The programme involves the measurement of the road safety performance of a country’s road infrastructure, and the identification of potential remedial programmes to help improve road safety outcomes.
The work is conducted by local experts with the support and guidance of the international iRAP teams.
