Community-based Burns Surveillance Toolkit
The Community-Based Burns Surveillance Toolkit is designed to supplement the WHO Global Burns Registry by assessing prevalence and causes of burns in community settings. The toolkit includes a survey to gather information on the details surrounding the burn injury, e.g. location and activity at time of injury; how the burn was treated at home and/or at a health facility; and on the prevalence of impairment and disability. This toolkit was created in collaboration with the Alliance’s Burns Working Group, HERD Nepal, and Hilary Wallace (Fiona Wood Foundation) and was pretested and validated in Nepal.
