Ireland hosts 19 countries for discussions on Child Safety Action Plans in Europe

The Ministry of Health and Children and the Health Services Executive of Ireland hosted the European Child Safety Alliance and its partners on the Child Safety Action Plan (CSAP) initiative for a two-day meeting on December 2-3. Held in the historic Dublin Castle, the meeting was officially opened by Minister Aíne Brady who welcomed representatives from 19 countries and indicated that Ireland’s performance grade of ‘fair’ on their Child Safety Report Card meant they had work to do on child injury and would address this.

During the meeting project partners shared progress and current challenges in developing and/or implementing their child safety action plans and discussed the great value the project has had for child injury in their countries.

In particular, it was identified how the Child Safety Action Plan project has become the umbrella programme from which all the other activities of the European Child Safety Alliance flow. The framework and information the initiative has provided and the capacity it has built have established a stronger base from which the Alliance network can take specific child safety actions.

- Representatives from 19 European countries participated in the European Child Safety Alliance CSAP meeting in Dublin, Ireland.

The CSAP initiative is part of a larger European Commission funded project, PHASE, which officially runs to June 2010.
