WPHA is considering creating an Injury & Violence Prevention Section. In order to create a section within WPHA, at least 10 individuals must be identified who have shared interest, a description of the section and initial annual workplan or objectives, and the names of a section chair and co-chair must be submitted to the board for section approval. 


The Section would be pending approval by the WPHA board following interest shown. Below is a draft purpose statement and objectives - please share your feedback.  Additionally, if you are interested in being a member of this section (receiving information, email alerts, etc), please share with the WPHA Office (


The purpose of the Injury and Violence Prevention section is to provide space for networking and sharing among WPHA members interested in injury and violence prevention-related surveillance, prevention and advocacy. 


  • Promote current research and best practices on injury and violence prevention within Wisconsin.
  • Provide Section members with opportunities to interface with data and research to support injury and violence-related advocacy and prevention efforts of concern to the Association.
  • Support efforts to achieve health equity in all activities of WPHA.

WPHA looks forward to responding and supporting the needs of our members!
