“If you won’t put a helmet on your child, you’d better plan ahead.”

AIP Foundation is partnering with Vietnamese road safety stakeholders to design and implement a 3-year public awareness campaign in 2011 targeting child helmet use. Children comprise 40% of traffic fatalities and often do not wear helmets due to widespread misinformation about the medical safety of helmets for children. Although the government issued Decree 34 in May 2010 – requiring children over the age of 6 to wear helmets – only 30% of Vietnamese children wear helmets.

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
