With the aim of improving the lives of children in Malaysia and in partnership with the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti of Putra Malaysia (UPM), Safe Kids Malaysia (SKM) UPM was established in 2011 as a member of Safe Kids Worldwide. SKM works closely with government, industries, schools and communities to increase awareness about preventable injuries and deaths.
The organization previously had a primary focus on road safety and drowning prevention, but now includes home safety education and awareness through the Safe Kids at Home program. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed by UPM and Safe Kids Worldwide USA (www.safekids.org) in 2011 for a period of five years (2011-2015) and later was renewed for 10 years (2016-2025).
