Preventing Violence and Unintentional Injury

Injury, the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44 years, is largely preventable. CDC will continue and expand its work in several areas, including youth violence prevention, violence against women, bicycle helmet usage and head injury prevention, and fire-related injury prevention. Research, interventions, and programs focused on preventing and reducing violence and injury among the elderly will also be conducted.
