  • What are our biggest injury problems in Minnesota?
  • Who is most at risk?

You'll find answers in Preventing Unintentional Injury in Minnesota: A Working Plan for 2020, a publication of the Minnesota Department of Health, Injury and Violence Prevention Unit, supported in part by funding from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. The goal of the 2020 Plan is to share data, offer strategies, suggest potential partners and help all of us work together more effectively to prevent fatal and non-fatal unintentional injuries
