Can We Prevent Drowning

Given the scale of drowning deaths, globally, and its prevent-ability, it is both tragic and surprising this issue has not attracted more engagement.


Globally, drowning claims the lives of an estimated 236,000 lives annually.
We can all take action to end drowning We can all do something to prevent drowning.

Wherever we are. From raising awareness of the scale of the problem; recognising and promoting knowledge and awareness that tested solutions exist to prevent drowning; working with the local or national government to develop drowning prevention plans and policies, volunteering with drowning prevention, lifesaving or search and rescue organisations, knowing how to keep ourselves and our families safe when we are in, around or on the water.
