The Québec WHO Collaborating Centre (CC) for Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention, established in 1995, is comprised of institutions in the Québec public health network, i.e. four regional public health branches (Montréal, Montérégie, Capitale-Nationale and Bas-Saint-Laurent), the Direction générale de la santé publique in the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux du Québec and the Institut national de santé publique du Québec (INSPQ). Through its mission of international cooperation, the INSPQ is responsible for ensuring the Centre's leadership and coordination.
Within their respective mandates, these partners run promotional activities on safety and prevention of intentional and unintentional injuries. These activities cover various fields of intervention such as violence and suicide prevention as well as safety promotion and injury prevention in urban environments, in transportation, in residential and in recreational and sports activities. The 2009 Activity Report gives a detailed outline of the activities that took place in 2009.
