Матрица Хэддона как инструмент снижения смертности от внешних причин
Although deaths from external causes are often described with the words "random" or "accidents", they are not. There are certain risk factors that directly or indirectly lead to, for example, alcohol poisoning, car accidents, murder and other external causes of death. The ability of developed countries to limit the negative impact of various risk factors of external causes of death makes possible to attribute them to a group of mostly preventable deaths. Analysis of the Russian mortality from external causes shows that it leads to significant demographic losses in years of life, and excess deaths. Therefore, the primary focus should be on the increasing of life expectancy by reducing traumatic mortality, especially in working ages. Based on the reports of WHO, UNICEF, World Bank, UNDP and other international organizations the classification of risk factors of death from external causes was made by using the Haddon matrix.
