The CSTE Injury Surveillance & Control Subcommittee was established in order to link state-based expertise in epidemiology and surveillance with injury prevention and control activities and organizations. CSTE members have experience and expertise in injury epidemiology and can partner with other public health agencies in order to build surveillance capacity within states, conduct surveys, write reports, and engage in other activities related to injury prevention and control. CSTE recognizes that injury prevention and control activities are strengthened when epidemiology is linked closely with organizations representing other public health disciplines and agencies. For that reason, many subcommittee projects and publications have arisen through collaborative activities with a host of other partners, including the Safe States Alliance, the American Public Health Association (APHA), the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), the Children’s Safety Network (CSN), the Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR), the Public Health Data Standards Consortium (PHDSC), and CDC/NCIPC. Currently, the injury subcommittee is working to suggest priorities for future injury activities at CSTE.
