These indicators can help decision and policy makers to take positive measures for injury prevention as well as safety promotion. The registry will be connected with hospital database (emergency department) where the RTA data will be replicated in real-time mode to increase data completeness and accuracy.

As a result, the PNIPH will receive the replicated data from the Police Traffic Department and Ministry of Health on the defined data schema to be utilized for policy briefs and research purposes. These efforts could help to contribute in order to reduce road traffic accidents through advocacy and policy procedures and promote safety and injury prevention.
