Objectives of YASA International

YASA International, an International Non-Governmental Organization, seeks through its efforts to create a greater level of safety awareness and commitment from all people in order to reduce the global burden of unintentional injuries. It supports strategies to improve international cooperation for safety promotion and injury prevention. The organization launched from Lebanon in 2002 the Middle East Campaign for Accident Prevention (MECAP) which was successful in building effective partnerships with many public and private agencies in the region, especially with media and educational institutions.
 
The organization works to persuade policy-makers and decision-makers of the immediate necessity to treat Injury Prevention as a major public health issue and to adopt the universal concept of 6Es, based on cross-sectoral collaboration, as a new approach to reduce RTI.

YASA International provides social support to the bereaved families. It counts on their   active participation in the safety promotion movement in the Middle East.

The report, prepared by the organization, entitled “International Cooperation to Improve Road Safety” is an important response to the underestimation of road safety by many national and international agencies. The report is directed at all policy-makers in various sectors such as public health, education, transport, media, law and other sectors,  and aims through this to push efforts for better road safety for all.
YASA International came after the increase in the tragedies resulting from traffic crashes in most Arab Countries.  It is YASA Group for Public Safety that is known by “YASA International” and is a Non Governmental Organization that is also not for profit and organizes various studies and programs aiming at:
1. Increasing Arab cooperation for better road safety like what is done in Europe.
2. Promote the role of Youth in the campaigns related to traffic safety
3. Promoting the Youth Declaration for Road Safety through a dynamic website that works on involving the youth in road safety promotion.


In an aim to achieve all those listed above, YASA International has signed various Memorandum of Understanding – MOU, among which we have with:
1. World Health Organization – WHO EMRO.  This MOU has covered the cooperation in various safety issues among which is the research.
2. UN – ESCWA (18/12/2006):  This MOU included the cooperation with ESCWA in the several activities that were organized in the region for the occasion of the UN Global Road Safety Week that took place between 23 and 29 April 2007.
3. Ministry of Transport in Syria
4. Road Traffic Authority – Dubai
5. MOUs with various Lebanese organizations who work on safety promotion such as:


YASA is also an active member in the European Federation for Road Victims –FEVR and has participated in many FEVR activities in Austria, Luxembourg, Belgium, the Netherlands...
YASA has also wide cooperation with Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, the European Union Delegation, EUROMED partnerships, the World Bank, many road safety associations such as the French association…
Moreover, Ms. Nellie Ghoussaini who is from YASA has chaired the World Youth Assembly organized by the WHO in Geneva on 23/3/2006.  This session has around 400 youth participants from around 125 countries.  YASA also announced its work on spreading this declaration among Arab countries and for this YASA launched three new websites:
