Safe System focused road safety strategy for Tunisia

April 24, 2024

According to the Global Status Report on Road Safety published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in December 2023, the number of deaths due to road accidents in Tunisia exceeds 2,000 per year, with a rate of 16 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, which represents a significant cost for the Tunisian economy[1]. One of the main achievements highlighted in the 2023 World Report is the reduction in the road mortality rate estimated by the WHO from 24 per 100,000 in 2016 to 16 per 100,000 in 2021, thanks to a multi-sectoral national effort aimed at improving the reporting of road accident deaths in 2019-2020.
