This is the first of two issues dedicated to injury surveillance and prevention in New South Wales. Injury prevention is gaining appropriate recognition as a public health priority, both nationally and within NSW. The current estimated burden on health care and other community resources due to injuries in NSW is $4.4 billion annually.
