The reduction of mortality in traffic accidents is the goal of the project Observatory of Health and Human Mobility (OMSH), launched on Monday (2) in Goiânia (GO). The work consists of the intersection of data from 22 municipalities that concentrate 74% of accidents in the state, and aims to reduce spending on care for victims.

According to the Secretary of State of the Cities, Igor Montenegro, an accident with fatality costs $ 148,000 to the Government, with £ 28 000 injured and no victims £ 3000. In addition, deaths and sequelae of traffic accidents generate a social problem is the lack of a loved one, family breakdown or failure by labor.

He also pointed out that the accident rate in the state, 27 per 100 000 inhabitants, is above the national average, which is 20 per 100 000 inhabitants. The municipality of Uruaçu is the record of accidents, victims are 57 per 100 thousand inhabitants. Goiânia is 47 victims per 100,000 inhabitants.

The Secretary of State for Health, Faleiros Antonio, reported that 50% of surgical centers are occupied by victims. Only in 2010 the cost of hospitalization due to accidents in Goiás were more than $ 7.2 million. Public health is not done in hospital. A trip to the hospital reveals that all other measures have failed, he says.

Among the actions to reduce these accidents is reduced by 50% of property taxes for vehicles without tickets or accidents associated with those programs Ballad Responsible Rodovida Urban Reconstruction and Rodovida Flagged Goiás. The Centre creates an integrated system of preventive and corrective actions, explains Igor Montenegro.
