Drowning Reports

Drowning is serious threat. Hundreds of thousands of people drown every year. Population projections mean that the problem is going to get worse, especially in developing countries.

Counting victims does not save lives or reduce drowning - but understanding the magnitude of the problem and identifying the risk factors does allow lifesaving organizations to provide effective prevention actions to the highest risk populations, locations and activities.
