Safe Kids Worldwide

Safe Kids Logo

Safe Kids Worldwide was founded in 1988 by former Children’s National Health System pediatric trauma surgeon Martin R. Eichelberger, M.D., and Herta Feely, to reduce injuries from:

  • Motor vehicles
  • Sports
  • Drowning
  • Falls
  • Burns
  • Poisonings

Since 1988, there has been a 60 percent decrease in the unintentional injury rate among children 19 years and younger.

Children and families are at the core of what we do and Safe Kids continues to lead the way with an innovative and imaginative approach. Their work is changing the country and the world in terms of how children are cared for and kept safe.
