The burden of noncommunicable diseases (including injuries) is increasing and currently accounts for nearly half of the global burden of disease among all ages [1]. Five million people worldwide lose their lives annually as a result of trauma and injury [2]. Globally, among the age range of 15-44 years, the leading cause of fatal injury are traffic collisions, inter personal violence, self harm, war, drowning and exposure to fire.
