Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC)

The Kentucky Injury Prevention and Research Center (KIPRC) is a partnership between the Kentucky Department for Public Health and the University of Kentucky's College of Public Health that combines academic investigation with practical public health initiatives.

 

Our purpose is to decrease the burden of injury in the Commonwealth. Our partnership, grounded in a belief that most injuries are preventable, cultivates a collaborative approach to problem solving. KIPRC works to reduce injury through education, policy initiatives, public health programming, surveillance, risk factor analysis, direct interventions, and evaluation.

 

KIPRC's mission is to increase knowledge and awareness of the injury prevalence in Kentucky, and to impart skills and strategies to reduce this problem and make Kentucky a safer place to call home.
