The 2019 Child Gauge report said more than 8,000 children die every year as a result of injuries in South Africa. The leading causes are road traffic injuries (36%), homicide (28%), unintentional injuries such as burns and drowning (27%) and suicide (8.5%).

Although most injuries may not be inflicted intentionally, the causes of injuries to children are often linked to the circumstances in which people live and most can be prevented.
