CABRERA-ARANA, Gustavo  and  VELASQUEZ-OSORIO, Natalia. The decade of action for road safety in Medellin, Colombia, to 2015. Rev. salud pública [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.1, pp.140-150. ISSN 0124-0064.

Road safety (RS) is key in the study and intervention of human mobility. It is a determining priority in international public health and in the development of communities and nations. The declaration of a global RS crisis in the 1990s by the United Nations urged the social, political and technical processes to propose the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2010-2020 (DARS). The DARS has a global action plan structured around five pillars; the first refers to institutional management. The article describes the background, framework, evidence, and effects of poor management during first half of the DARS in Medellin, Colombia up to 2015.

Keywords : Management; road safety; motor vehicles.
