World Health Organization - Global report on drowning

The World Health Organization (WHO) presented a drowning report during the 30th International Conference of the Pontifical Council for Healthcare Workers which took place at the Vatican on 21 November 2015. The figures are terrifying: every hour 42 people die from drowning.

Dr. David Meddings, who coordinates drowning prevention work for the WHO, paid tribute to H.S.H. Princess Charlene and Her Foundation whose actions focus on the fight against drowning.
