Division of Violence Prevention
The prevention of intentional injury and violence is a public health priority for the Comprehensive Injury Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Violence related injury is the third leading cause of death in the US among youth and adults ages 15 to 34 years of age and the fourth leading cause of death among children aged 10 to 14 years of age.
The Comprehensive Injury Center is committed to improving health and safety outcomes for Wisconsin residents. The Division of Violence Prevention works in partnership with the Division of Suicide Prevention and the Division of Data Surveillance and Informatics to advance the mission of the Comprehensive Injury Center to prevent and reduce intentional injury, violence and suicide throughout the state.
