Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network
The Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network consists of state injury and violence prevention programs, university-based injury research centers, national injury prevention centers, and hospital-based injury prevention centers covering 13 states. The network forges partnerships among injury and violence prevention professionals, offers professional development opportunities, builds state capacity to develop effective prevention programs, and promotes opportunities for networking, support, and education. This group also leads the Systems Approach National Peer Learning Team.
Each state in the network has programs to develop, implement, and promote effective injury and violence prevention and control practices. States funded under the Core SVIPP are highlighted with a star.

The Southeastern and Southwestern Injury Prevention Network also coordinates the Injury Policy Opportunities Project, which aims to increase our
capacity to use health policy as a tool to prevent injuries and violence.
