According to the World Health Organization:
The International Training Program of the Center for Injury Research and Policy (CIRP) seeks to decrease the burden of injury mortality and morbidity worldwide. The program has three objectives:
The International Visiting Scholars Program was established in 2004 as part of the International Training Program in Injury Research. Selected scholars are matched with a CIRP faculty member who serves as their mentor. Scholars apply for a non-immigrant visiting scholar visa and are expected to sign an agreement stating their intent to return to their home country. Scholars receive in-depth training in injury research methodology and have the opportunity to pursue research projects with the goal of publishing in U.S. peer-reviewed journals.
In order to enhance global scientific exchange, the International Training Program in Injury Research invites injury experts working in the developing world to Columbus, Ohio for academic exchanges in injury research and safety promotion.
The Center for Injury Research and Policy has established international cooperative agreements to conduct collaborative injury-related research with the following organizations:
Future plans include collaborative agreements with other organizations globally.
