A peer-reviewed study led by world-leading researchers at Johns Hopkins University and published by a respected scientific journal has estimated the number of lives and serious injuries saved on roads made safer by iRAP partners worldwide.

The study is the first attempt to measure the impact of road projects financed by Governments, development banks, NGOs and private-sector road operators around the world that have made use of the iRAP methodology and tools made available freely thanks to the long-term donor support of the FIA Foundation and supporting donors including the World Bank Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF), FedEx, 3M, Prudence Foundation, Botnar Foundation and the Aleatica Foundation.

Join us to hear the research findings and life-saving stories behind the unveiled numbers:
