Dr. Steve Beerman

President – International Life Saving Federation

Drowning prevention needs strong global advocacy. The global burden of drowning mortality, morbidity and disability has been significantly underestimated. The burden of drowning has disproportionately affected children, low income nations and less adaptive populations. Many at risk groups are in nations and regions with no lifesaving lead organizations.

The International Life Saving Federation in collaboration with other international agencies, governments and member organizations will build capacity to lead, partner and assist community drowning prevention, lifesaving and lifesaving sport projects. Local community leadership will be facilitated to engage in strategic interventions that will reduce drowning mortality and water related injury. The ILS World Conference on Drowning Prevention  highlighted effective evidence based drowning prevention strategies for Vietnam, South East Asia and at risk populations throughout the world.
