Measuring Landmine Incidents and Injuries and the Capacity to Provide Care

PHR’s guide for epidemiological-based surveys provides essential data for properly quantifying the public health consequences of landmines responsible for the death or injury of tens of thousands of people every year despite an international treaty banning their use. The development of standardized survey tools helps to ensure that data collection proceeds according to appropriate scientific methods and allows the comparison of data between different regions and countries.
