Welcome to the Child Injury Action Group Strategic Plan Implementation Site

The Child Injury Action Group (CIAG) is an action group of the Ohio Injury Prevention Partnership and consists of representatives from various disciplines including: children’s hospitals, local health departments, businesses, state agencies, professional associations and universities.

Through a data-driven prioritization process, the CIAG has identified the five strategic priority areas that are contained in this plan. In addition to utilizing a data-driven approach, the CIAG also considered feasibility, partnerships, funding and other resources when drafting this plan.

Strategic priorities include: teen driving safety, bicycle and wheeled sports helmets, infant sleep-related suffocation, sports-related traumatic brain injury, and child restraint law review and revision.

With limited funding, the CIAG strives to make an impact through policy, systems and environmental changes. As resources become available, individual-based interventions will be considered. Subcommittees have been formed by interest area to address objectives and activities listed in this plan. Further documentation of those activities is available in the action plans for each subcommittee.

While this five-year plan is intended to serve as guidance for CIAG activities for that timeframe, the members of the CIAG intend to address other relevant, timely child injury issues as the need arises.

Using this Plan:
This strategic plan covers the timeframe of 2017-2021 and includes four strategic priorities. Each priority begins with a description of the issue and a broad goal statement. Objectives are associated with each strategic priority and are numbered sequentially.
