DEEP DIVE: To end the silent epidemic of drowning, whose voice matters?
To mark World Drowning Prevention Day on July 25th, we present a deep dive episode from The George Institute in which Dr Jagnoor Jagnoor discusses the table of influence in drowning prevention with global experts. Globally, an estimated 236,000 lives are lost to drowning every year - almost 650 every day, 26 every hour. Drowning is an issue that affects every nation of the world, and its scale and impact have been recognised at the global level with the adoption of a historic resolution to address it in 2021. In this conversation, our guests will draw on their experiences of drowning prevention in India, Africa and the UK to consider how best to strengthen regional actions such that it is inclusive, responsive to lived experience, and is context specific. We can all act together to end drowning.
The Scan podcast from The George Institute for Global Health explores the latest research, emerging evidence, and crucial progress towards developing practical approaches towards better treatments, better care and healthier societies globally.
