RLSS hosts ‘Accelerating Action on Global Drowning Prevention’ event in London

Today, the RLSS hosted an event at Marlborough House, home of the Commonwealth Secretariat, on Accelerating Action on Global Drowning Prevention.  The event was run in partnership with the RNLI, and included presentations from both organisations, as well as Dr David Meddings, Drowning Prevention Lead at the World Health Organisation as Key Speaker.  We were also delighted to have Shafkat Hossain from the Centre of Injury Prevention and Research Bangladesh, and Danielle Obe from The Black Swimming Association presenting, with comments from Dr. Joanne Vincenten from UNICEF.  The event was well attended by staff from various High Commissions and Government offices in London, along with representatives from organisations who support the work of the RLSS and RNLI, and those who work within the drowning prevention community.
