  Deaths from accidental injury in the rural areas of 13 provinces in the Islamic Republic of Iran from 1993 to 1994 were investigated. The crude mortality rate was 4.33 per 1000 and the number of deaths from unintentional injuries was 5213 [10.7% of all deaths]. There were more deaths among males than females [65.7 per 100,000 versus 26.1 per 100,000]. After the age of 1 year, over 65-year-olds had the highest average of deaths resulting from injuries [111.9 per 100,000]. The leading causes of death were traffic accidents [55.0%], drowning [10.1%], falls [9.5%] and burns and scalding [9.5%]. Since most injuries are preventable, their reduction should be considered a priority.

  The role of health professionals in childhood injury prevention has been recognized. This study aimed to assess the knowledge of and attitudes to childhood injury epidemiology and prevention of behvarz [rural health workers]. A self-administered questionnaire was sent to 210 behvarz, randomly selected from rural areas of Khuzestan province. Many behvarz were not aware of the epidemiology of childhood injuries. However, they had positive attitudes towards all injury prevention activities. There was a positive correlation between their knowledge and attitude scores [P < 0.01]. Childhood injury prevention programmes should be included in the training of behvarz and covered by primary health care programmes in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

  To study behavioural factors associated with diet and to investigate body mass index distribution, a cross-sectional survey was carried out in Ahwaz. A composite dietary behaviour score obtained from self-reported responses to a 24-item food-frequency questionnaire was used to categorize eating habits as more/less healthy. Responders were 1600 heads of households from 150,000 randomly selected residences. Less healthy diets were shown to be associated with age and economic status, and greater obesity with women and age [reversed after ages > 65 years]. Interventions targeted at less healthy eaters need to be evidence-based, and further research into factors determining access to healthy diets in developing communities is required.

  A one-year study was carried out in Ahwaz, Islamic Republic of Iran to investigate the epidemiology of children's cycling injuries. Children 15 years old or younger taken to the accident and emergency [A and E] departments of all urban hospitals due to cycling injury were investigated, and their parents interviewed by questionnaire. During the study, 1079 children presented to A and E departments with cycling injuries [78.8% boys and 21.2% girls], representing 4.9% of all children presenting with injuries. The most frequent injury sites were the street [51.9%] and the home [42.3%], and the head was the part of the body most frequently injured [55.0%]. None of the injured children was using a cycling helmet at the time of injury. This study suggests mandatory helmet use, safety regulations and educational programmes for bicycle riders should be established in our community.

  This study in 2004 and 2005 aimed to present the pattern of job stress among car manufacturing workers in one factory in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and to assess its relationship with occupational injuries. Data were collected from 608 male workers [508 at-risk general workers and 100 with injuries in the last year]. Job stress was assessed by the Belkic occupational stress index. The prevalence of job stress was 21.3%. The main occupational stressors were time pressure [78.5%], mode of payment and evaluation [56.4%], and interaction with people and machines [41.3%]. The risk of injury among those with job stress was significantly higher than those without job stress [OR = 2.0; 95% CI: 1.20-3.30]. Job stress was responsible for 11.9% of all occupational injuries in this group.

  A cross-sectional study in Ahwaz city, Islamic Republic of Iran, described children's indoor and outdoor play patterns. A total of 952 pupils aged 7 and 9 years and 942 parents completed questionnaires. Children's favourite activities were: playing football [22.3%], cycling [13.2%] and watching television [12.3%]. This differed from those perceived by the parents who reported watching television [20.3%], playing football [13.3%] and playing in street [11.4%]. Children reported their favourite places to play were: street [27.4%], park/playground [18.3%] and home [17.8%]. There were significant differences in play patterns by age and sex. The play patterns of older children and boys exposed them to more hazardous situations than younger children and girls.

  A 1-year study of fatal injuries was carried out in 10 provinces of the Islamic Republic of Iran based on a population of 16 740 637 in 2000-01. All reported deaths were compared and validated with other sources of death registration. Out of 66 846 deaths, 9733 [58/100 000] resulted from injuries. Overall, 14.9% of all deaths with 26.9% of years of lost life were from injuries. Most fatal injuries were unintentional [48.0/100 000]. Deaths from traffic injuries [30.0/100 000] are the highest in the world. Of 1693 intentional fatal injuries, 61% were due to suicide, at a mean age of 29 years.
