Based on the literature review and general theories, the paper presented hypotheses to test under the Tanzanian context. The findings were compared with general global trends and similar studies from low-income countries. The results confirmed the high burden of non-fatal unintentional injuries on children and its entirely different distribution by cause compared to the fatal injuries. It was found that sex/gender, age and household income have an effect on child injury patterns, with age being the strongest determining factor. (Less)
