Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(1)1. The Safe community practice started to develop 1975 through the Falköping, Sweden program2. The Network of Safe Communities started to develop around 1980 with cooperation with KI as a hub, because a large involvement there of Safe Coom researchers3. The WHO,”VIP” contacted the Karolinska Inst. 1986 for cooperation4. KI was established 1989 as “A Collaborating Centre”

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(2)1. Three communities were “designated” 1989 according to 12 (now 6) indicators- one remains of them; Lidköping, Sweden2. Through 20 years around 180 communities are designated3. The process of “designation” was run by the WHO CC (on Community Safety Promotion) primarily4. Affiliate Safe Community Support Centres (Institutions rather than communities) were established- now around twenty all over the World with different specialties and functions within the movement

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(3)5. The WHO CC Community Safety Promotion choose to ask some affiliate centres to serve in the designation process- s c Certifying Centre- this function is under evaluation. It is obvious that more such centres are needed to cope with the rising expectations and in order to limit travel and administrative costs.6. Two of these Cert C are also WHO Collaborating Centres (S Africa and Colombia)- situated in the most recent explored geographical areas (from the Safe Community point of view).

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(4)5. The WHO lawyers investigated the status of a designated Safe Community and made it clear from the beginning that they are NOT WHO-selected communities but selected by the International Safe Community movement.6. The WHO CC on Community Safety Promotion has during 20 years served as a link between The WHO VIP and the International Safe Communities Movement- the ideas of the WHO “Every Human Being has the Right to Health and Safety” (the Stockholm Manifesto 1989) and other WHO statements are leading in the development of the Network

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(5)5. The International Safe Community Movement is a policy movement- showing that there is a certain value in involving the very local community in Safety Promotion and Injury Prevention- whether it is accident (non-intentional) or violence (interpersonal as well as self-directed) or disaster prevention or community rehabilitation.

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(6)6. The foremost mechanism for development and quality assurance is peer reviewing processes within the movement.7. The evidence-base in the proposed programs is a result of input from scientific institutions and during later years the WHO VIP! The strength of the movement is the local decision process of the community- the weakness is sometimes lack of evidence-based actions.

Cooperation with the WHOIntroduction(6)8. The WHO Collaborating Centre on Community Safety Promotion at KI, Stockholm will in a while cease to exist.9. Should this formal link to the WHO also cease? Will the movement be able to stand on its own feet? Does the VIP of the WHO need the Safe Communities future development for reaching out?10. OR, should on the contrary this link be replaced by more or at least one CC in each region or should the links be more active and regionalised? What happens then- will the World focus be replaced by Regional Networks?
