Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition

Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition Statewide community-based organization committed to preventing injuries to children and youth in Hawaii.
We are a Statewide community-based organization, established in 1991 by Hawaii Department of Health (incorporated as non-profit in 1995), comprised of broad-based representation from more than one hundred-fifty organizations, agencies, and individuals committed to preventing injuries to children and youth in Hawaii
(1)

Injury is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Hawaii for all children, responsible for more deaths of children ages 1-17, than all other causes combined. Automobile safety has been our major focus as traffic related injuries continue to be the leading cause of death for Hawaii’s children and youth. KIPC, with the help of our members, community partners and volunteers has made major strides in improving vehicle occupant protection for children in our state. Safety Seat Inspection Stations statewide offer hands-on education free of charge.

Mission: The Keiki Inury Prevention Coalition (KIPC) mission is to prevent and reduce injuries to children in Hawaii.

In this powerful PSA, Nicole urges parents to talk to their child’s pediatrician about #DrowningPrevention. http://www.aap.org/drowning #LevisLegacy
