Abstract [en]

In 1998 more than 1,600 people were killed and 11,000 injured in road accidents in Ghana. But not all accidents are registered and the actual numbers could be higher. The total costs due to accidents are estimated to be at least USD 300 million every year - and increasing. Road accidents occur as a result of several contributory accident factors and effective road safety plans involve joint efforts by many different stakeholders. The Government of Ghana acting through the Ministry of Transport and Communications has therefore established a National Road Safety Commission to develop, promote and coordinate the National Road Safety Strategy. The purpose of the strategy is to break the upward trend in road accidents and create a basis for concrete, sustainable accident reduction towards 2010. This paper describes the major public road safety stakeholders and the six major safety focus areas for the road safety strategy.
