Countries

Argentina, South Africa & Vietnam represent three emerging countries where drink-driving poses a serious risk to young people worldwide.

The SR4Y project is being developed in each country in partnership with 3 major non-profit organisations – Handicap International in Vietnam, Cruz Roja in Argentina and Global Road Safety Partnership in South Africa. Together with these partners, we carry out preventive interventions at community level, aimed at mobilizing citizens and better training local players to help prevent drink-driving amongst young adults.
