New research has found children in New Zealand are dying from serious trauma injuries at twice the rate of those in the Australian state of Victoria.
The study examined cases of more than 13 hundred children seriously injured between mid-2017 and mid-2022.
It focused on injuries usually caused by cars, motorbikes, bicycle accidents and serious burns.
Save the Children Advocacy Director Jacqui Southey told Kate Hawkesby the results are unacceptable.
She say officials need to focus on raising the level of health care for children across the country.
