ICES is a proud partner in the Bay Area Global Health Film Festival- August 19th, 2014 in San Francisco, California.
The 2014 festival will focus on advocating for “Road Traffic Safety Locally…and Globally” a critical issue not only in San Francisco but around the world as the deaths and injuries related to road traffic accidents are slated to surpass the total of those related to HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
In simple terms more people will be permanently disabled or die because of an injury than the top 3 infectious diseases COMBINED. The good news is we know how to treat these injuries, we know exactly what we need to do to curb the statistics but we need your help!
We need to amplify our combined voices to encourage the leadership, policy makers and funders to support sustainable capacity building interventions.
The Bay Area Global Health Film Festival is an advocacy event to serve as a catalyst to spark a local grassroots movement with a global impact.
The festival is sponsored by IGOT (Institute for Global Orthopaedics and Traumatology) and the UCSF Orthopaedic Trauma Institute.
