CDC is working with Pakistan to improve their ability to prevent, detect and respond to infectious disease threats. This work helps meet the U.S. commitment to assist
at least 31 countries in reaching the targets outlined in the Global Health Security Agenda .
CDC’s extensive global health presence and experience are critical to achieving these targets.

The research data indicate a persistent increase in the numbers of motor vehicle crashes, injuries, and fatalities. Changes in the reporting of rates are important to note in evaluating the data. Commercial vehicles contribute disproportionately to these motor vehicle injuries. There is a need to further the recognition of injuries as a public health issue in this country. Specific exploration of the epidemiological data; intersectoral collaboration between health, law, police and transport; and the development of appropriate information systems, will contribute to an appropriate response by Pakistan
