In the last quarter, AIP Foundation has built on the progress of our school zone safety efforts and the impact of our helmet distribution projects in numerous schools across provinces in Vietnam. We have seen decreases in reported student crashes and reductions in the average speed of drivers in school zones near project schools, coupled with measured increases in helmet wearing rates across schoolchildren that we have worked with. Read more about our progress and indicators below.

Vietnam's first school zone speed reduction program observes one year of success

19 June, 2019 - Pleiku City, Gia Lai Province, Vietnam

AIP Foundation collaborated with the Gia Lai National Traffic Safety Committee to host a midterm review workshop in Pleiku City for Slow Zones, Safe Zones, the first-ever pilot program to reduce speed in school zones in Vietnam, supported by Fondation Botnar and the Global Road Safety Partnership. The program focuses on speed reduction and school zone safety through the construction of tailored school-zone modifications like speed bumps, road markings, speed reduction signs, and sidewalks. Additional program components include increased law enforcement, road safety public awareness campaign to promote positive road user behavior, and the development and testing of a nationally applicable road safety e-curriculum.

The program has seen great success in speed reduction so far including a reduction of speed to 40 km/h on national roads running past Nguyen Luong Bang Primary School and 30 km/h on provincial roads running past Phan Dang Luu Primary School. After one year of implementation, AIP Foundation found that parent knowledge of current speed limit and other traffic issues increased from 15.6% to 62.4%. The average speed of drivers around school zones in Pleiku reduced around 10 km/h for motorcycles and 15-20 km/h for cars, buses, and trucks. Reported student crashes fell from 25.3% to 7.4% The percentage of students hurt in road crashes near program schools in Pleiku also fell to 69% from 88.3%. 

AIP Foundation hosted an experience sharing workshop with two other Foundation Botnar and Global Road Safety Partnership grantees, Save the Children and Plan International. The workshop concluded with site visits to the two program schools. Next program steps include advocating for continued police enforcement and advocating for continued speed reduction legislation.

Over twenty program schools reflect on successful Helmets for Kids 2018-2019 program

May 31, 2019

Teachers, government representatives, parents and students come together to learn from this year’s program.

AIP Foundation coordinated with Gia Lai Traffic Safety Committee organized a 2018-2019 school year Helmets For Kids review workshop for nearly 100 people, including Mr. Le Van Hanh, a representative from the Gia Lai Traffic Safety Committee and other representatives from Gia Lai Department of Education and Training, Board of Education and Training, teachers, parents, and students. Helmets For Kids is supported by long-time partner Johnson & Johnson. After three successful years of program implementation in the province, general helmet wearing rates in the province remains high at nearly 95% – marking the overall effectiveness of the program. The Gia Lai Traffic Safety Committee and AIP Foundation presented all 12 program schools with awards for their excellent job protecting their students and school community this year. AIP Foundation also conducted an orientation and teacher training workshop for representatives from three new program schools. Staff from these new schools were introduced to the program, trained on how to use program guideline and shown how to measure children’s heads to choose correct helmet size and fit.

Following the workshops in Gia Lai, a review and orientation workshop was held in Thai Nguyen with more than 60 participants from the Provincial Traffic Safety Committee, Department of Education and Training, school boards, and parents. After one year of implementation at Helmets For Kids schools, the helmet wearing rate of Thai Nguyen has increased from 8% to 93%. During the 2019-2020 school year four new schools will join the program together with four existing schools, increasing the total number of program schools in Thai Nguyen to eight this year. AIP Foundation also held eleven successful reflection workshops in Quang Nam and Yen Bai, marking five and three years of impactful program implementation respectively. In general, the helmet wearing rate in Yen Bai and Quang Nam has remained above 95%. In addition to the review workshop, activities in Quang Nam included a “Traffic Culture for Children” day.

 

In the last quarter, we have collaborated with both the government and private sector organizations to distribute helmets, provide safety education, and spread public awareness of the importance of helmets. The Vietnamese government made firm commitments at the first Round the World Roundtable in March to support the UN's Voluntary Global Performance Targets for Road Safety. Read more below.

Helmets for Families engages medical experts to enhance its school and family-based interventions

16-04-2019 - Ho Chi Minh City

Students welcome Abbott employees and volunteers to their school

Helmets for Families, supported by Abbott, introduced its sixth year of programming with a launch event held at Lam Van Ben Primary School in Nha Be District, where 1,292 students and teachers received free helmets. AIP Foundation hosted the event in coordination with the Ho Chi Minh City Traffic Safety Committee and Department of Education and Training.

This year’s Helmets for Families program will continue collaborating with doctors and medical professionals, using their experiences working with road crash victims to educate teachers, parents, and students about the very real dangers of not wearing a helmet. “Teachers and parents play an important role to promote and sustain safe road behavior for students,” said Mr. Nguyen Ngoc Tuong, Vice Chairman of the Ho Chi Minh City Traffic Safety Committee. “Without their cooperation and enthusiasm it would be difficult to re-enforce safe helmet use. Educational activities directly influence the awareness and behavior of students, parents and community members to wear quality helmets properly.”

Last month, teachers and parents visited doctors and patients at Cho Ray National Hospital to learn from their experiences with road-related tragedies. Afterwards, this information was incorporated into teacher trainings at program schools. Helmets for Families provides communication materials to road crash injury patients and their families at national and local hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City.

Helmets for Families engages teachers and volunteers to promote helmet wearing in Ho Chi Minh City

05-04-2019 - Ho Chi Minh City

Abbott volunteers implement creative interventions at Cu Chi District primary schools

During the first week of April, worked with a trainer from the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Health to deliver a series of teacher trainings for nearly 150 teachers at four program schools in Nha Be District as part of our Helmets for Familiesprogram sponsored by Abbott. The trainings focused on correct helmet use and gave advice on how to improve helmet wearing rates at each school. Teachers enthusiastically engaged in discussion sessions and brainstormed ideas to improve project implementation. Later in the week, AIP Foundation connected with volunteers from Abbott to create educational artwork to demonstrate correct helmet use for program schools in Cu Chi District. These paintings were hung up at the school gates to remind students and parents to always wear helmets. During the 2017-2018 school year, Helmets for Families made significant impacts at new intervention schools. The average helmet wearing rate at schools in Cu Chi District increased from 18% to 90%. Additionally, the rate of parents wearing quality helmets increased from 25% to 57% at the same new project schools.

AIP Foundation and Swedish Embassy observe Traffic Safety Day at two primary schools

09-11-2018 - Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City

AIP Foundation and the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam joined many corporate partners to distribute nearly 2,000 high-quality helmets to students at two primary schools in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The Swedish Embassy gave nearly 1000 helmets to Ba Dinh Primary School in Hanoi and nearly 1000 helmets to Luong The Vinh Primary School in Ho Chi Minh City. At the events, the organizers called for stronger public awareness and urged adults to put helmets on children whenever they travel on motorcycles. Additionally, there was a flash mob dance that encouraged students to always wear their helmets as well as games that tested their helmet safety knowledge. The ceremony took place in support of AIP Foundation’s Helmet for Kids program, which provides thousands of high-quality helmets to students across Vietnam as well as road safety education to them and their teachers and parents every year.

Approximately 22,000 people lose their lives and 453,000 suffer injuries due to road crashes each year in Vietnam. Road crashes is the number one cause of death for young people aged 15 to 29 and the number two cause of death for children aged 5 to 14 in Vietnam. With over 80 percent of the population under the age of 50, the effects of road crash deaths on young people result in losses to both the family and the larger community.

As the summer enters its peak, AIP Foundation has continued to diversify its approaches to public education and awareness programs throughout Vietnam in addition to its programs. Read below to learn about some of our major updates from the past few months:

Nearly 2 million first- graders across Vietnam to receive quality helmets
5 July, 2018

The National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) and Honda Vietnam Company Ltd (Honda Vietnam) have announced that approximately 1.95 million quality helmets will be donated to all first-graders in Vietnam at the beginning of the upcoming 2018 school year. Protec, our social enterprise helmet factory, will produce approximately 700,000 of the helmets.

This exciting announcement represents the culmination of years of advocacy and awareness-raising by road safety stakeholders in Vietnam. At the beginning of 2015, we launched the National Child Helmet Action Plan (NCHAP) in Vietnam, bringing together major partners to discuss ways to sustain and improve child helmet use. As part of NCHAP, and in partnership with The UPS Foundation, we employed large-scale public awareness campaigns that helped increase child helmet use rates in Hanoi, Danang, and Ho Chi Minh.

The success of NCHAP has prompted the government to take action to promote child helmet use within the country. And on 19 January 2018, the Prime Minister issued Directive 04/CT-TTg, with the goal of raising child helmet use rates in Vietnam to 80% by 2020. The current helmet distribution plan sponsored aims to support this Directive as well as the earlier foundational work carried out by NCHAP.

Popular emoji icon reveals darker side in distracted driving campaign targeted at Vietnamese youth 
11 June, 2018- Ho Chi Minh City

A billboard featuring the campaignâs message installed at a university in Ho Chi Minh City to act as a constant reminder for students on their commute to and from school.

A billboard featuring the campaign’s message installed at a university in Ho Chi Minh City to act as a constant reminder for students on their commute to and from school.

The darker side of the popular emoji icon was revealed to audiences across Vietnam in a newly launched distracted driving campaign targeted at 15 to 29-year-olds. The campaign’s slogan is “Leave your phone alone or you could be next!” and features a sinister, evil emoji character as its key visual. The two associated TV commercials will be broadcast on national and provincial television channels; shown on televisions at target universities and at Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City; incorporated into the communications plans for 63 provincial traffic safety committees; and disseminated through digital channels via an online media campaign. Thirty billboards featuring the campaign’s message will also be installed at 10 target universities as a constant reminder for students on their commute to and from school. AIP Foundation is leading the initiative as part of The UPS Foundation-supported Safety Delivered program and working in close consultation with the National Road Safety Committee, Ministry of Education, and target universities.

The campaign takes the familiar icon of a cute and innocent emoji and turns it into a lethal killer on the road by featuring a malicious emoji that preys on distracted motorcyclists. Through this innovative reimagining of common road situations into horror movie scenarios, the campaign addresses the consequences of unsafe behaviors such as calling, text messaging, and using the Internet. These behaviors cause a driver to become distracted, slow his or her reaction time, and affect his or her ability to make safe driving decisions.

According to baseline surveys of 927 male and female students from seven universities in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, 79% of students reported having used a mobile phone at least once while driving in the past six months. This represents a troubling reality, considering the World Health Organization found that a driver talking on a mobile phone is four times more likely to be involved in a road crash than one who is not.

Thanks to our Helmets for Families program implementation this year, both the average helmet-use rates among students and the percentage of parents and students wearing quality helmets have increased dramatically. Average helmet-use rates among students increased from 62% to 77% at our four schools in the Hoc Mon district of Ho Chi Minh City and from 18% to 90% at the two new target schools in Cu Chi district that were added to the program this school year. Observations were conducted using our rigorous helmet observation methodology developed in partnership with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that utilizes strategic filming of traffic flows. These positive results can be attributed to road safety education conducted both inside and outside of the classroom, helmet distribution, and school policy enforcement.

For measurements on the quality of helmets being worn by students and parents, it was found that of all helmets checked, the percentage of parents’ helmets that meet national safety standards increased from 25% to 57% and the percentage of students’ helmets that meet national standards increased from 35% to 98%. These data points were calculated through random interviews of 181 parents at the gates of Tan Phu Trung and Tan Thanh Dong schools in January 2018 (baseline) and 207 parents in March 2018 (post implementation). Program intervention activities included parent trainings and helmet exchanges to replace substandard helmets with quality, new ones.

Helmets for Families, which recently celebrated its fifth year of implementation, is supported by the global healthcare company Abbott and implemented by AIP Foundation, the National Traffic Safety Committee, Ministry of Education and Training, Ho Chi Minh City Traffic Safety Committee, and the Department of Education and Training.
