YELLOW MAY 2022 WILL HAVE INTERNATIONAL LAUNCHING

The international lauching has the support of medical trauma societies and governments of several countries

In its 9th edition the 2022 Yellow May Movement (https://www.maioamarelo.com/yellowmay) – created by the OBSERVATÓRIO Nacional de Segurança Viária (www.onsv.org.br) – will have an international lauching next Monday (05/02). Scheduled to start at 8 am in Miami/USA (9 am in Brasília), simultaneously in several countries, through a webinar, with the participation of trauma societies and local governments in several countries.

According to the director-president of the OBSERVATÓRIO, José Aurelio Ramalho, “with this support from Panamerican Trauma Society, coordinating an action on all continents, inviting associations linked to trauma and victim care is very important for the Yellow May movement. This demonstrates that we are increasingly advancing in sectors that we had not reached before. This is very positive for the movement and for the reduction in the number of victims of traffic incidents”, he highlights.

For Dr. Gustavo Fraga, a surgeon, this is an opportunity to draw the attention of the whole of society to the importance of collective engagement for more responsible behavior in traffic, to avoid hundreds to thousands of events that result in traffic injuries and deaths.

“As a health professional, a surgeon who assists trauma victims, the engagement of all health professionals is essential because these traffic victims have a great impact that makes it difficult to provide care in emergency units across the country. These are cases of victims of a disease that, almost completely preventable, who due to distraction and irresponsible behavior will be treated in emergency rooms, generate exams, surgical treatments, hospitalizations in intensive care, etc. In addition to the risk of death that these people have, there are more than 35,000 traffic fatalities each year. So, prevention is the best way when it comes to traffic events and it is important that the entire Brazilian society is engaged in caring for this type of situation”, emphasizes Dr. Gustavo Fraga.
