The International Collaborative Effort (ICE) on Injury Statistics

The International Collaborative Effort (ICE) on Injury Statistics is one of several international activities sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The goal is to provide a forum for international exchange and collaboration among injury researchers who develop and promote international standards in injury data collection and analysis. A secondary goal is to produce products of the highest quality to facilitate the comparability and improved quality of injury data.

Mission: The mission of the Injury ICE is to improve international comparability and quality of injury data. The ultimate aim is to provide the data needed to better assess the causes and consequences of injury, differences in injury occurrence over time and place, and the most effective means of prevention and control.

Vision: There will be injury statistics, which are internationally comparable and useful for injury prevention and control.
