This abstract explores the impact of implementing The National Child Helmet Action Plan (NCHAP), launched in January 2015, to promote Child helmet use in Vietnam. Main activities of the Action Plan include public awareness-raising and mass media communications on child helmet use, school-based education, and increased police enforcement on a national scale to crack down on violations of the child helmet regulation [1]. The plan is supported by many organizations, including the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation, Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), World Health Organization (WHO), The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), The UPS Foundation, and FIA Foundation [1].
